Andrew Campbell speaks on 'Knowing and learning to deal with the climate challenge'

Andrew Campbell's excellent presentation to the 2008 actKM Knowledge Management Conference looked at climate change impacts and the implications for how we learn and manage knowledge at all levels and across all sectors of the economy and society. Andrew is currently Managing Director of Triple Helix Consulting, and in his former role as Executive Director of Land & Water Australia he was instrumental in setting up the Knowledge for Regional NRM Program.

Other highlights of this year's actKM Forum Conference, held on 14-15 October 2008 in Canberra, included Dr. Jane Chrystal from Central West CMA presenting on their pilot Regional Knowledge Strategy, and the innovative Collaboration Cabaret. The Collaboration Cabaret saw conference participants collaborate in the weeks leading up to the conference to create a unique piece of entertainment staged at the Conference Dinner. In doing this, delegates explored focused, online collaboration using a variety of Web 2.0 tools prior to the event - actively learning (or learning more) about collaboration by really doing it.
