Biographies

Commission for the Future was established in January 1985. It focussed on issues affecting the future including the predicament of youth, the ecology of health, sustainable environments, improving skills in Australia, technological change and law, management and work organisation, education futures, biotechnology, the information society, foreign affairs, the greenhouse effect, labour trends and population studies. The commission was widely criticized throughout its life and had to endure ever decreasing budgets. It closed in 1998.

In July 1991 the Commission for the Future was privatized and changed its name to Australian Commission for the Future Ltd. Works by these bodies are found under the name used at the time of publication.
