Seminars

The People. Policy. Place (PPP) Seminars Series has been running since the Northern Institute's inception in 2010. The monthly seminars are open to all Friends of NI, CDU Staff and the public and are hybrid events held live at the Northern Institute and online via Zoom. 

The series focuses on policy through various disciplines and attracts a diverse audience, including academic staff, university students, NT/ local government and NGOs, local businesses, Indigenous and industry representatives, and interested public members.

Unless specified, PPP Seminars run on the 4th Wednesday of each month from March until December, 10:30 - 11:30 am Darwin time (ACST). Registrations open two weeks before the event.
