I live in Western Sydney, NSW Australia. Retirement has allowed me some time to become involved with various environmental groups, the greens party, CASSE (Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy), and read and reflect on what global trends mean for the future. There are plenty of good blogs and new sites around, but even more not so good ones. I will integrate those things that seem to be frequent or fundamental, and try and put it together in my own way. Taking part in groups with other activists, gives a great sense of involvement and finding out what other people are thinking is really important.
