waves of innovation and an AGM in Canberra this week

The world is facing numerous challenges and dwindling natural resources but it’s far from ‘doom and gloom’.

Join us to hear James Bradfield Moody talk about the emerging new wave of innovation.

Co-author of The Sixth Wave, he says that we are about to embark upon the next wave of innovation. In this wave a spectacular boom in technology and powerful new markets will drive a shift away from resource dependence to a new way of life: resource efficiency. Waste will be a source of opportunity and nature a source of inspiration.

What roles do science communicators play in this?

When: this Wednesday, 24 November 2010 Time: 6.00 pm for 6.15 pm start Where: CSIRO Discovery, Clunies Ross St, Acton

Evening also features: * drinks and nibbles * a raffle for ASC members **win The Sixth Wave * quick ASC Canberra Annual General Meeting to elect 2011 committee (details below).

The ASC Canberra AGM We’d love to have more people involved in the local committee. The committee’s main responsibilities are organising networking and professional development events for ASC members in Canberra and supporting and shaping the national activities.

The bare minimum positions we must elect are: 1. President 2. Treasurer 3. Brains Trust (the rest of the committee)

Please register your interest in being a committee member with Claire Harris (claireharris.oz@gmail.com) before the meeting if possible.

Being on the committee is a great way to build your professional network and get event management experience. And we like to enjoy ourselves, catching up often for breakfast or in the evening over a beer.
