Ecological Society of Australia and the ABC, 2005
We coordinated and promoted a public event based on the NSW Government’s biodiversity banking proposal—a market-based mechanism for protecting biodiversity, which involves trading in biodiversity units.
The panel comprised:
- Hugh Possingham (Professor of Ecology, The University of Queensland)
- John Quiggan (Professor of Economics, The University of Queensland)
- Louisa Mamouney (Senior Project Manager, NSW Department of Environment and Conservation)
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.
