Our world is experiencing transformative change. Geopolitical forces are realigning. The centre of economic gravity is moving east. Our climate is changing, and we are heading for a population of 9–10 billion by mid-century that is economically globalised and undergoing profound urbanisation and demographic transitions.
The Australian Academy of Science’s ambitious Australia 2050 project is intended to help Australia chart its path into this uncertain but shared future by engaging scientists, business people, policy makers and members of the public in structured conversations about the challenges we face, and the kind of Australia we want for our children.
The workshop process utilised iMEET! – Global Learning’s collaborative meeting technology to capture the ideas generated over the two days of the workshop.
