A cheat sheet for Inspiring Australia

Kristin: This time last week I attended an Australian Science Communicators meeting at the RiAus to look at the report “Inspiring Australia: A National Strategy for Engaging with the Sciences”. I took along my cheat sheet, a diagram of how I felt the report fitted together and how the recommendations met desired outcomes. Given the interest from people on the night, and others from the Inspiring Australia group last week in Canberra, I thought I’d make it available in the hope it assists others to think through the recommendations in the report.

Finally, we’d be interested in your comments on the report and if you found this diagram useful.
