How are you going?

A couple of months ago the editor of the U.S. journal, Natural Hazards Observer, published by the University of Colorado, invited bushfire safety expert Joan Webster to write an article on ‘the fate of the Australian policy of leave early or stay and defend.’ You can read her article here.

It has been archived in the Bushfire Preparation section of this blog, which you can find in the top right menu tab. Well worth a look as we head into the warmer months.

Hop on your bike and head on over to Paradise Books on Friday Oct 4 for the book launch of Changing Gears:
Looking for inspiration about how to simplify their lives, Greg Foyster and Sophie Chishkovsky cycle from Melbourne to Far North Queensland (via Tasmania, naturally). Preposterously underprepared, they are propelled by the many inspiring and eccentric characters they meet – from a forest activist living up a tree to an 18th-century woodsman and a monk walking barefoot through Queensland. Featuring eye-opening encounters with DIY downshifters and leading figures in sustainability, Changing Gears is a jaunty adventure that explores an important question for the future: can we be happier with less?
