To live ethically in the 21st century as a citizen of an affluent country like Australia, it is not, Peter Singer contends, enough to abide by conventional moral rules which tell us not to do certain things. The world has changed, and our responsibilities have also changed accordingly. He will discuss those responsibilities in respect of global poverty, climate change, and our treatment of nonhuman animals.
