Will Steffen

Obituary. Will Steffen will be remembered by many as a “giant of the nation’s science” but as Tim Flannery has said, quoting from Laura Chung’s article in The Age Feb 3rd “he will be remembered as a leader (of international standing) in his field, communicator, mentor whose work paved the way for much of today’s climate policies .. (but he was also) the most intelligent, kindest and most gentle person”.
Will supported two of my forums, in 2009 and 2020 travelling each time from Canberra to present as one of my speakers. Needless to say his presentations were outstanding. It is a privilege to have known him and TfM is fortunate to have both presentations (video and power point) on our website.
