Sam Mostyn & Peter Singer - We have failed to protect those who don’t yet exist

The In-Between  /  EP02
Available Now
A conversation between business sustainability advisor Sam Mostyn and moral philosopher Peter Singer, moderated by Ann Mossop. Sam and Peter discuss the role of business in sustainability and climate action, the discrepancies between our values and monetary donations for global aid, and the ethics of responsibility we have toward the generation of humans who don’t yet exist. They touch on how the pandemic has highlighted gender and class divisions, along with the significance of community and care.
I think Australia missed a moment to be a leader in climate response. We are the petri dish of the impacts of climate change.
Sam Mostyn
Clearly, we missed the opportunity to distribute the vaccines against COVID 19 in an equitable way.
Peter Singer
