Steven Cork is an ecologist and futurist. He spent 25 years in CSIRO researching the nutritional ecology of plant-eating animals and interactions between biodiversity and human welfare. He led CSIRO's Ecosystem Services Program (1998-2002) and played a leading role in writing the scenarios for the World's ecological futures for the United Nations' Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. Both of these programs had water at their heart - its ecological roles and its importance to humans and other life. His career has focussed on interactions between science and policy. He spent 5 years working as a policy officer in the Australian Government and has served on numerous advisory committees. He now works privately as a futurist, strategist and ecological advisor as the Principal Consultant of EcoInsights. He also leads a major project on the Resilience of Australia in the private sustainability R&D organisation Australia 21.
