Designing 2050

Designing 2050

An inspirational blueprint for those wanting to be future makers rather than future takers, this book offers a third choice. According to Peter Ellyard – former Executive Director for the Australian Commission For The Future – we are at a tipping point in history. Globalisation, increased technological and social innovation,the growth of the educated middle class and democracy, and a shared awareness of our ecological vulnerability are combining to offer us a chance of designing sustainable, diverse societies which are prosperous in every way.

You can watch a 10 minute video of Peter Ellyard being interview by his publisher Cameron Reilly of The Podcast Network, recorded 5th June 2008:
