There will be a forum following the AGM led by three distinguished speakers.  Julian Cribb, Graham Turner and Dexter Dunphy.


    • It’s time for a reality check.  At 11am Julian Cribb will explain the reasons why we are facing future famine.  Julian, one of Australia’s foremost science communicators, has 32 awards for journalism and has authored and and edited eight books including The Coming Famine.  (http://www.sciencealert.com.au/jca.html)


    • At 1:30pm Dr Graham Turner will speak about the famous book “Limits to Growth”.  Contrary to popular myths, Graham’s research shows that their ‘business-as-usual’ scenario of global collapse over coming decades, is a remarkably accurate account of the global economic-environmental system.  Both their work and Graham’s more detailed modelling of the Australian system indicate that achieving sustainability requires herculean changes in population, technology, consumption and work-life balance. Following a distinguished career as a physicist, Graham is now a whole-of-system sustainability analyst at the CSIRO.  (http://www.csiro.au/files/files/plje.pdf)


    • At 3:15 Professor Dexter Dunphy will lead a discussion on corporate change programs aiming for sustainability.  Dexter is a leading authority on corporate sustainability, and supporter of sustainability initiatives within the University of Technology Sydney and other organisations.  He is Emeritus Professor in the School of Management at University of Technology Sydney.
