ENERGYAUSTRALIA - The Energy Efficiency Centre hosts free, regular energy saving and sustainability workshops and seminars.
Free Seminar - THE SIXTH WAVE
EnergyAustralia is proud to present Dr James Bradfield Moody discussing his book, The Sixth Wave - how to succeed in a resource-limited world.
Since the Industrial Revolution, the tide of progress has ebbed and flowed: five distinct waves, each starting with new technologies, transforming our industries, societies and economies. The Sixth Wave explores where we are now, on the cusp of another transformation – the sixth wave.
How do we stop our addiction to the consumption of resources? How do we prepare for a world where resources are scarce and increasingly expensive? Where will the next generation of entrepreneurs seek new opportunities for innovation?
Come and hear Dr James Bradfield Moody describe how he foresees 'The Sixth Wave' unfolding.
Attendees will receive a free copy of James Bradfield Moody and Bianca Nogrady’s book The Sixth Wave – how to succeed in a resource-limited world.
