As the year comes to a close, Australia21 is proud to release our 2016-17 Annual Report. We did a lot with very little over the period, running nationally significant projects, boosting our profile and calibrating the goals that will keep us powering on through 2017-2018.
Australian regional economies and the environment will be the winners from innovative new technology that converts nutrient pollution from industry and municipal water treatment into valuable algae biomass. That’s the finding of the latest Australia21 report, ‘Opportunities for an expanded algal industry in Australia’.
A Melbourne school has signed up to pilot Australia21’s Smarter About Drugs Conversation Pack to engage its students in open and informed discussions about illicit drugs and the policies that guide Australia’s response to them. In other developments this month, the Making the Future Work project has been awarded $10,000 grant, there’s been a major shift on PTSD and we give you a sneak preview of our soon-to-be released Algal Farming report.
Greens Senator Janet Rice today hosted and participated in an Australia21 roundtable on the potential role of algal farming in contributing to solutions to a range of issues facing Australia including food security, fuel security and water degradation.
