“We sit at the crossroads between utopia and dystopia, facing the immense and urgent challenges of climate change, peak oil, economic collapse, resource overconsumption and overpopulation, while at the same time hovering on the precipice of an age of abundance, driven by innovations in robotics, telecommunications, scientific breakthroughs and a growing consciousness of our collective predicament and fragile interconnectedness. The challenge of our generation is to consciously guide this transformation toward a sustainable civilization.
In an era that could very well define the fate of the planet and our species, there has never been a more important and exciting time to be engaged, educated and inspired.”

Australia21 takes a proactive approach to global change and climate change. Australian science writer, Julian Cribb, has researched and published extensively about these challenges. He suggests that we must now build a circular world economy: one that wastes nothing; recycles everything, mines nothing anew and no longer pollutes. We need a growth economy that runs on ideas, creativity and knowledge.
We are developing a series of podcasts to help inform and energise Australian voters in the lead up to the 2019 Federal Election – to encourage the joining of hands and sharing of ideas, information, values and solutions to the challenges of global change. The podcasts will be released in April 2019.
