Someone will think about the future.
It had better be us.

Imagine that it’s 7am, January 1 2050. What world would you be waking up to? What world would you want to wake up to?

Scientists, politicians, industry representatives, NGOs often meet to speculate about what the distant future may look like. These speculations may result in decisions which could affect how Australia will look like in 2050. As well as these voices, it’s important to hear from a broader mix of Australians and their experiences.

We invite you to participate in this special focus group to help a team of CSIRO scientists understand what the Australian public think Australia should look like in 2050, what we want it to look like and what we as a community can do about it.

If you wish to prepare for this event, you may want to give some considerations to these two questions:
1. What could (or will) influence the way Australia will be in 2050?
2. What will be the effect of these influences?

You can guarantee a place at this event by pre-registering.  There are 30 pre-registration places available, leaving 15 places available for door entry (no pre-registration required).  We would like to thank you for your participation and time with a $50 gift voucher.  Those who pre-register by 6 March can choose from the following range of gift voucher options:
