Throughout 2010, our response to climate change has often felt like being on a roller coaster. But is it all bad news? To examine the implications of the past years’ events, the Carbon Innovators Network is hosting Taking Stock our end of year event that will look back on 2010 and consider what next year might achieve.

Taking Stock will include a panel of leading practitioners with scientific, regulatory, policy, business and communications backgrounds to stimulate a moderated discussion chaired by Kinesis Director Nick Rowley.

The panel for Taking Stock will include:

• John Merritt: CEO of the EPA Vic, Victoria’s environmental regulator.
• Rebecca Falkingham: Director Policy and Projects, Victorian Office of Climate Change and one of the leading contributors to the development of the Victorian Government’s Climate Change White Paper.
• Liz Minchin: author of the book Screw Light Bulbs: Smarter Solutions for Australia’s Future, which offers positive, credible answers to how Australia can get serious about tackling climate change.
• Mike Raupach: Fellow at the Australian Academy of Science and one of the lead authors of the Academy’s The Science of Climate Change, Questions and Answers publication.
• Bruce Donnison: General Manager of Sustainability at Fonterra, the world’s leading exporter of dairy products responsible for more than a third of the international dairy trade.

We want to hear from you too! To help guide the event, we are seeking your response as a Carbon Innovators Network member to a series of questions about climate change in 2010. Your response to these questions will help guide and inform the session – check out the online forum for the questions.

15 December 2010 – 4:30pm – 6:30pm, The Wheeler Centre, 176 Little Lonsdale Street, Melbourne
