The festive season!


No doubt people s thoughts will turn to matters festive over the next few weeks.  With dark days and long nights its obvious why people like a break at this time of the year.   However there are two issues to consider:

1)   The problems we face will not go away.  Unsustainable population growth; housing market which generates demand rather than meets need; increasing use of resources – they are finite!; and, an increasingly degraded environment.

2) Xmas is part and parcel of our love affair with consumerism.  We need to change.  This does not mean creating a society which lacks fun or choice but it does mean developing a society which is at one with its environment.

Lets think about what we need to do!
