"Our reluctance to accept new discoveries about our relationship to the earth, one another, and our ancient past keeps us locked into the thinking that has led us to the crises threatening our lives today"
Are you looking for practical, achievable ways to reduce the impact of electricity price rises in your community? The Community Power Conference: Australian Communities Taking Charge, aims to showcase how regional Australian communities: - are developing innovative energy projects, helping to reduce local economic shocks - can take practical action to hedge against rising energy prices. The Centre for Sustainable Regional Communities, in its third biennial conference on renewable energy, is partnering with the Central Victoria Solar City project, part of the Australian Government’s Solar Cities program, and the City of Greater Bendigo, to deliver an exciting exploration of current energy efficiency and renewable energy strategies and actions being taken by Australian communities.
ON SALE NOW! Richard Heinberg’s latest landmark work goes to the heart of the ongoing financial crisis, explaining how and why it occurred, and what we must do to avert the worst potential outcomes. Written in an engaging, highly readable style, The End of Growth describes what policymakers, communities, and families can do to build a new economy that operates within Earth’s budget of energy and resources. We can thrive during the transition if we set goals that promote human and environmental well-being, rather than continuing to pursue the now-unattainable prize of ever-expanding GDP.
There have now been two launches of The Transition Companion. The first took place on October 5th in Totnes Civic Hall, and the second was yesterday, on the roof of Food from the Sky in Crouch End, an amazing urban agriculture project in London. Today sees a third, our Twitter book launch! The idea is that from 2pm – 5pm today, I will be on Twitter (@robintransition), answering any questions you might have about the book, responding to any requests for signed copies, and generally tweeting about ‘The Transition Companion’ to anyone who takes an interest. The hashtag is #ttcomp.
Economic Reform Australia is a non-party-political organisation dedicated to educating and informing decision makers and the community about how to achieve a socially, environmentally and financially sustainable society. Of particular concern is the drift away from sustainable and just societies around the planet. We regard reform of the financial system as an essential prerequisite to other reforms aimed at tackling the world's immense social and environmental problems.
The concept of strong sustainability is based on the scientific fact that all human life and activity occurs within the limitations of planet Earth, or the 'biosphere' where humankind lives, including all societal functions, such as the economy.
It is a self-evident truth that without a functioning biosphere there can be no society or 'sociosphere', and without a sociosphere there can be no societal functions, including an economy or 'econosphere'.
Strong sustainability recognises that in order for human civilisation to continue, the true model for sustaining the planet on which we rely to survive should look like this (see above).
