He is the first journalist to be elected a fellow of the Australian Academy of Science, was a visiting professor at Balliol College, Oxford, and is a visiting professor at the University of New South Wales. In March 2006, a star in the constellation Carina was named after him. He is planning a visit. Robyn’s new book FUTURE PERFECT: WHAT NEXT? AND OTHER IMPOSSIBLE QUESTIONSis a book for those who believe we can shape the future of our earth, and that there is a moral responsibility for us to do just that. It’s difficult to disembark once you’re here, after all. Written in Robyn Williams’ characteristically whimsical and provocative style, it conjures up the possibilities before us in our cities, our employment, our transport and even our sex lives. It confronts the challenges before us and does not shrink from the hard answers. Miriam Lyons formerly worked as the Policy Coordinator of New Matilda and is now Director of the Centre for Policy Development, she co-convenes ‘Plus 20’, a network dedicated to long-term planning for social change.  “
