What will Perth 2050 look like?
We know a bit about what people think and do, but can th at help us to predict our future? Are our current attitudes to science and technology a precursor to the world that will surround us in 36 years? Could this projection change? Can we mold a different future?

*         Dr Tom Cresswell - Isotope ecologist in aquatic ecosystems at ANSTO Institute for Environmental Science

How to make sense on an 'uncertain' world?
In a world where scientist are taught that there is no such things as science fact, just hypotheses that have not been disproved, how can we communicate the important stuff? How can we acknowledge the nature of science and yet convince beyond a reasonable doubt? What does a one in ten chance really mean?

Is today a blip in time and will tomorrow change the world?
What were the life altering, world changing moments in science? Irrigation, electricity, the microscope, penicillin..? Are we about to embark on the next big thing? What will it be? Where will it lead us? What will it mean for us and our world?
