Cosmos Country podcast: disaster preparations

Disaster is becoming a fact of life. And that means adapting to fire, flood and drought must become part of Australia’s way of life if we are to cope. 

In this episode of Cosmos Country, Jamie Seidel and Dr Glenn Morrison talk with Australian National University’s Head of Disaster Solutions, Associate Professor Roslyn Prinsley about how regional communities can address frequent, intense flood events.

Science is changing our world for the better, every day. The Royal Institution of Australia, a not-for-profit publisher of Cosmos Magazine, science news journals, and provider of education material to school teachers, and which runs the Scinema International science film festival, is celebrating the role of science through the Reasons to Hope project.

We want you to tell us what you think science should do in the next 20 years to improve our planet. Your views will help us understand where science might be headed.

The Greenlight Project is a year-long look at how regional Australia is preparing for and adapting to climate change.
