Mr Carr will give personal insights into his life as a politician, conservationist, statesman and author at a public presentation and discussion, during which he will also touch on his experiences in Australian and international politics, as well as his deep personal interest in history.

Mr Carr is the longest continually serving premier in NSW history, and was responsible for many important 

milestones during his 10 years in power, including landmark reforms to civil injuries law and drug laws, NSW being named as having the nation’s best school literacy, as well as major projects to improve Sydney’s road system, including the M5 Extension, the 

Eastern Distributor and the Cross City Tunnel.

As premier, Mr Carr introduced a number of anti-greenhouse measures, including the world’s first carbon trading scheme and curbing the clearing of native vegetation. 

Mr Carr will present his talk at UNE’s Lewis Lecture Theatre at 2pm tomorrow with a question and answer  session and book signing to follow.
