Your vision for the next 30 years
I have just received a copy of the book 'Thirty-year Plan'. The book presents the essays of 30 writers and thinkers who were asked to name one thing that they think the world needs if humans are 'to live happily, sustainably, redeemably on earth'.
What a great idea. I am wondering if IFFA members feel like taking part in a similar exercise, but more specifically about environmental conservation in Victoria and Australia....
If you would like to take part, please write a short piece on a quality that you think humans need to work on to bring about change for a better world. Or if you like, perhaps write more detail concerning ways that politics, science, philosophy and community may work together to ensure that the natural world is more truly appreciated and cared for.
Examples might include discussion on children's education, community interactions, how bushland can be protected and managed, agriculture and food production, recreation. Perhaps more detail on ecological management policy...whatever you like. Because all reality grows out of planning, imagination and dreams doesn't it?
If this forum topic takes off perhaps we could publish some pieces in Indigenotes. If it doesn't well it was worth a try :)
