2001 | Scarcity and Abundance
The sparks this program will generate will ignite the flame of curiosity of guests and audiences alike. With more than 50 individual sessions, conversations and panel discussions, presented in five different venues, we anticipate a cornucopia of discourse across many themes, topics and disciplines. In this year of Australia’s Centenary of Federation, it is particularly appropriate that population and water will be discussed, since they were potent issues 100 years ago and remain so today. Reconciliation between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australia is a process to which all caring citizens aspire and which has an international context. Responding more effectiveIy to addiction in our society presents great challenges for our communities. Significant developments in technology and the sciences also feature prominently in the discussions.
