Climate Change policies
As a parent, grandparent, educator and world citizen I want our Neo Liberal western politic to be overturned.
The politics of consumerism, growth and profit are destroying our fragile planet. Science and education are our way to a new future and the arts have always and will always offer new vision and possible futures and well as helping to wake peoples senses.
