Two-day workshop, 8-9 December 2010
The increasing complexity of our society combined with the fragility and rapid change of the earth’s systems ensures we are in a race to protect Australia from the next crisis. The critical role of ‘education for uncertainty’ in meeting this challenge is obvious but what form should it take, what educational challenges are evident and what initiatives across the country are underway?
The Australian Emergency Management Institute (AEMI) and the National Security College (an initiative of the Commonwealth Government and the Australian National University) are seeking expressions of interest to attend a two-day workshop to help us define this future.
We are seeking speakers and workshop participants from a wide range of organisations who have a professional interest in education. We invite you to nominate and encourage you to submit an abstract for an oral presentation or poster for inclusion in this important event.

The workshop will be held at AEMI, Mt Macedon, Victoria. There is no cost for the workshop, meals, accommodation and transfer between the airport and Mt Macedon. Participants must pay for their own flights.
