Victorian action

Transition Sunshine Coast were invited to Victoria recently to present at a conference on urban sustainability, peak oil and transition towns. The Municipal Association of Victoria (their local government association representing all Victorian councils) is moving forward with some very ambitious plans there in regard to Transition Towns and Energy Descent Action Planning.

I was lucky enough to catch up with David Holmgren (co-originator of Permaculture) at the Victorian conference. David delivered a presentation on his Future Scenarios. It's well worth a visit to his website to see his views on what might develop out of climate change and peak oil combined impacts.

In coming weeks we'll be visiting councils and community groups in Far North Queensland, the Northern Territory and mid-west Queensland to deliver presentations on Transition Initiatives and Energy Descent Action Planning.
