Stirring the Possum
To liven things up, create a disturbance; raise issues that others wish left dormant. GA Wilkes, Australian Dictionary of Colloquialisms
Stirring the Possum was a series of events that aimed to encourage discussion about environmental issues. The events explored current thinking and innovative solutions through an engaging panel discussion, followed by audience questions.
The first event was held in 2004 and attracted a strong following until the last event in September 2014. Each event was hosted by Allan Holmes, former Chief Executive of the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources.
