Sustainability? Too boring, too vague, too late? A government greenwash or a survival plan? We'll start this course by finding out, and looking at the behaviours and values we need to work towards a sustainable future. You'll tell me what your passions are and we'll design a plan for the rest of the year. The plan may not be the same for everyone, and that's ok.

Our next step will be to understand human impacts on a "local-ish" ecosystem. I've called this "To the Beach" but it could be..to the bush...to the estuary...to the Port Hills. Let's organise a trip to a place of your choice and see what lives there and how.
