‘Not a Drop to Drink’ hypothetica

Cooperative Research Centres Association and the ABC, 2006

We wrote, produced, coordinated and promoted, a public event based on a hypothetical scenario of Australia without water in 2050.

The panel consisted of key water industry people, politicians, journalists, researchers and environmentalists. It included Malcolm Turnbull, Ian Lowe, Peter Cullen and Ticky Fullerton. Bernie Hobbs (ABC’s New Inventors) facilitated the event.

The outcome: The event attracted more than 200 people and was broadcast on ABC Radio National’s Big Ideas program.
