This Land Our Water, Water Challenges for the 21st Century, A Collection of Papers

Professor Cullen was an influential communicator in many debates on the sustainable use of water in Australia.

In 2001 Professor Cullen was honoured with the Prime Minister's Environmentalist of the Year Award for his National Action Plan for Salinity and Water Quality. He was also a founding member of the Wentworth Group of Concerned Scientists, formed in November 2002.

The 23 papers included in the book were originally written for journals, books and conferences. The collection resounds with the clarity of his purpose – to communicate scientific knowledge and influence the way Australians consider water use.

The Brisbane launch of this book was hosted at Griffith University by the Australian Rivers Institute (ARI), which Professor Cullen was integral in establishing.
