Professor Tim Flannery is one of Australia’s leading writers on climate change. An internationally acclaimed scientist, explorer and conservationist, Professor Flannery was named Australian of the Year in 2007.

Professor Flannery has held various academic positions including Professor at the University of Adelaide, director of the South Australian Museum in Adelaide, Principal Research Scientist at the Australian Museum and Visiting Chair in Australian Studies at Harvard University in the Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology.

A well known presenter on ABC Radio, NPR and the BBC for more than a decade, he has also written and presented several series on the Documentary Channel including The Future Eaters (1998), Wild Australasia (2003), Islands in the Sky (1992) and Bushfire (1997). His books include Here on Earth (2010) and The Weather Makers (2005). His latest book is ‘Sunlight and Seaweed: An Argument for How to Feed, Power and Clean Up the World.

Dr Andy Sharp has over 25 years’ experience in ecological research & monitoring projects and the design and delivery of single species and landscape-scale ecological management programs. His research has focussed on the ecological study and population dynamics of specific species, feral pest management, predator-prey interactions and the reintroduction of threatened species.

He has worked to successfully reintroduce the mainland tammar wallaby to Innes National Park and the recovery of the yellow-footed rock wallaby population in New South Wales and the Southern Flinders Ranges. He has championed the use of Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation - ensuring community local knowledge is integrated with best practice contemporary science when determining priority issues for investment and ensuring natural resources are used wisely and sustainably.

Anni Rowland-Campbell is Director of Intersticia, a philanthropic social enterprise based in Australia and the United Kingdom. Anni has a diverse background having worked in the arts, government, charity and corporate sectors, and combines this experience with her love of learning and education by seeking to help leaders, young and old, better understand, proactively manage, and harness the challenges and opportunities of the digital world. She is a Trustee of the Web Science Trust, an Advisor to New Philanthropy Capital, a Governor and Fellow of Goodenough College and a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Arts. Anni is a Member of the Greenleaf Centre for Servant Leadership, the House of St Barnabas and Newspeak House.
