Darwin - Is Bigger Better?

Population Forum Banner

A Darwin and Northern Territory Population Forum

Join us for an evening discussion with CDU Demographer Dr Tom Wilson (Northern Institute) and a diverse panel to discuss one of the most important topics for the future of the Northern Territory - what should the Territory's population policy look like?

How could we encourage sustainable population growth in North? Can we balance the economic benefits of a larger population while still preserving our unique Territory lifestyle? Come along to hear these questions and more tackled by an impressive panel line up.
