Live radio interview with Richard Marles MP

“As people achieve the voting age and they get a political voice, in a sense, this is the issue that they want to express that voice about. Because climate change is absolutely about their future. I’ve had the conversation around the dinner table with my son telling me: ‘This has to be the thing that you think most about. So, I absolutely get it. And that experience I have shared with other members of caucus, and it IS a conversation in caucus, and the point is often made that a younger generation look at some of the debates that are going on in the Parliament right now and just shake their heads and think ‘What are these people doing?’ And we absolutely get that.

We must have – for the future of our country, for the future of our economy, but more importantly, for the future of the world in which our kids and our grandkids are going to grow up in – we must have a coherent answer to this question. And what none of us want is a sense that when we are lying on our deathbed, people point to us and say ‘You were the generation who got this wrong.’.
~ Richard Marles, Labor Federal Member for Corio and Shadow Minister for Defence, in The Sustainable Hour

Elizabeth Wheeler

On 27 March 2018, Elizabeth Wheeler, Principal of Future Focused Buildings, gave advice on the analysis and selection of eco building materials for your home to the around 120 people who had come to Geelong Library for Geelong Sustainability’s second ‘Clever Living’ seminar.

The seminar also included a presentation by Raphael Siket, Director of Ecolibria, about building biology and healthy homes. You can listen to both presentations in full length:

Acknowledgement

We at The Sustainable Hour would like to pay our respect to the traditional custodians of the land on which we are broadcasting, the Wathaurong People, and pay our respect to their elders, past, present and future.

The traditional owners lived in harmony with the environment and with the climate for hundreds of generations. It is not clear – yet – that as European settlers we have demonstrated that we can live in harmony for hundreds of generations, but it is clear that we can learn from the indigenous, traditional owners of this land.

When we talk about the future, it means extending our respect to those children not yet born, the generations of the future – remembering the old saying that…



The decisions currently being made around Australia to ignore climate change are being made by those who won’t be around by the time the worst effects hit home. How utterly disgusting, disrespectful and unfair is that?
