The biggest and best liberty conference in the Asia Pacific Region is back – and with a new format designed to take #Friedman17 to a whole new level of awesomeness!

Join over 300 of the best and brightest libertarian thinkers, academics, and activists for a week of intellectual stimulation, education, debate and FUN!

This year, we are proud to announce a new format which will go beyond simply speakers and panels, and include interactive activities, competitions, debates and an ‘unconference’ session so that everyone can get the most out of this experience!

I am delighted to announce that tickets for the 5th Australian Libertarian Society Friedman Conference are finally on sale!

And if you thought the last few conferences were good, you ain’t seen nothing yet!

Out speaker lineup is better than ever, and we can now announce that we will be joined by the one, the only: NICK GILLESPE FROM REASON MAGAZINE!

Nick will be joining other superstars from the international libertarian community such as the world’s foremost public choice academic, Prof Michael Munger from Duke University, former Libertarian Party Presidential Candidate Austin Petersen, world’s greatest issues-campaigner and former Executive Director of the UK Taxpayers’ Alliance Matthew Sinclair, Director of the Brexit “Better Off Out Campaign” Rory Broomfield, and Australia’s own libertarian expat, the phenomenal and amazing Naomi Brockwell, and Hungarian Member of Parliament Zoltán Kész

Not to mention our stellar lineup of Australian speakers such as Professors Wolfgang Kasper, Suri Ratnapala, & Jeff Bennett, Theresa Moltoni OAM, President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry for Queensland, Law Lecturer Lorraine Finlay, and former Liberal MP and commentator Ross Cameron

But that’s not all! WE’re changing the whole format of the conference around this year, with more hands-on interactive activities, in addition, to simply speaker sessions, and years conference will feature interactive campaign workshops, career advice sessions for students, fun performances, and A CHANCE FOR PARTICIPANTS TO WIN $5,000 by pitching a campaign in our liberty shark-tank (more on that later!).

Early bird discounts of up to $150 are now on offer, so get in quick and reserve your spot at www.friedman17.org !

Liberty & Society Student Conference PERTH 2017

 

0R1A1130

4 – 6 August 2017

(Closing Date 23 June 2017)

If you missed the Melbourne conference here is your second chance in 2017.

Come and challenge yourself, question the way decisions are made and think seriously about the future of Australia and New Zealand? If you have started exploring the possibilities offered by classical liberal ideas then this conference is an opportunity not to be missed.

The Centre for Independent Studies recognises the importance of exposing, challenging and supporting young people who have an interest in exploring the foundations of a free society. The Liberty and Society student conferences are highly regarded with many participants saying the weekend was pivotal in building their personal philosophical framework.  For more information click here

Successful applicants from Australia or New Zealand receive a scholarship that covers food, accommodation and most of the travel.

‘It’s a rare opportunity to get a crash course in the fundamentals of Classical Liberalism, with a bunch of thirty other bright young minds. Wish it could have gone for another day, it seemed over before it began!’ ZC April L&S
