Dear IAG colleagues,

Yesterday it was a great pleasure to attend the launch of Geography. Shaping Australia's Future held at the University of Sydney.

Produced by the National Committee for Geographical Sciences under the auspices of the Australian Academy of Science, Geography. Shaping Australia's Future, is the decadal plan for Geography in Australia. This strategic plan, explains the contribution that geography makes to the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of Australians and Australia through research, education, training, skills, expertise and engagement with industry and the community.

The plan was four years in the making, led by Dr Alaric Maude, but involving a collective of Australian geographers.

Attached is a copy the of report and a summary for policy makers.
The plan's web link is:

The IAG commends the work of all those involved in bringing the plan to its fruition.

Geography. Shaping Australia's Future is intended for a broad audience so please, circulate widely.
