The Community Action Network Awards were first introduced in 1997 to recognize achievement that is positive and makes a difference in the inner city areas of Brisbane. Coordinated by the New Farm Neighbourhood Centre, the award citation reads "For excellence in journalism/social media which promotes the social inclusion and equality for all".
Dr Karl: Intergenerational Report flawed
Released every five years, the report provides a snapshot of Australia’s community and society in 40 years. Dr Kruszelnicki - also known as Dr Karl - singled out the reduced focus on climate change for criticism, describing the Government’s stance on the issue as “incredibly short-sighted”.
Despite assurances otherwise, he now believes he put his name and reputation to a report that is highly political. However, Dr Karl says he has not asked for the ad campaign to stop.
