What major changes will the next decade bring for Australia's major cities?
What will new developments in digital media communications bring in terms of social capital and community cohesion
These were just two of the major questions discussed by Mal Fletcher in a presentation to community and civic leaders in Brisbane in September.
The Change2020 event brought together community leaders from a variety of city projects within Brisbane and beyond, all of whom were anxious to know how to turn future change into a value-adding commodity for their communities and organizations.
After the event, Mal said: 'This was the first even of its kind hosted by my friends at Brisbane City Church. This church has already established an outstanding reputation for its work in community regeneration - especially among Brisbane's poorest and refugees.'
'So, it was good to stand with them as they provided a new service to civic leaders across the spectrum of the city's life.'
A follow-up event is now in the planning phase, scheduled for mid- to late 2010. Watch this site for more.

I'm a radio announcer in Australia and used your daily readings in my afternoon show. The number of people who rang in & commented or went to your website after listening always encouraged me. Kerry, Australia
