about

Australian politics and national life are trapped in a permanent present. There are few opportunities to imagine the future, and even fewer to create it. Politics, commerce, media all focus relentlessly on the here and now. This breeds a corrosive cynicism. Yet when alternatives are presented they are often embraced and quickly become the new normal.

Griffith Review 52: Imagining the Future will imagine new possibilities. It is time to envisage the future, without fear, as a landscape to be won through human striving and expression.

Contributors include Al Gore, Tim Flannery, Maria Tumarkin, Anthony Funnel, Margaret Simons, Tony Birch, Don Henry, Ashley Hay, Leah Kaminsky, Graeme Davison, Tony Davis, Jane Gleeson-White and many more.

Published with the support of the University of Melbourne and the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute.
