Black-2012-WRTD-supporter-logo-300x180.jpg

Research confirms that individuals who have pro-environmental values also hold a strong connectivity to nature and are frequently positive thinkers. Therefore to stimulate society change to a better world, methods need to be found to build connectivity to nature which in turn can influence pro-environmental social practice and behaviour.

Responsible Planning for Small Tourism Businesses

Part of a programme to encourage greater destination sustainability, devised by the Interntional for Responsible Turism-Australia includes  a one-day workshop will be held on Thursday 30 August 2012 in Molong, hosted by Central NSW Tourism and funded by Destination NSW through the 2011/12 Regional Product Development Program.

The plight of our dairy farmers is a threat to our pastoral landscapes

the romantistism of our pastoral heritage landscapes - enjoyed by us all, made possible by our farmers

Visitors and communities love their countryside but it is only kept as beautiful pastoral views by the good grace of the farmers. If we want pleasing views and not heavy industrialised farming then we need to pay the true price of milk (and other produce) so the scenic values become more resilient. The current threat to British dairy farmers, where milk is sold for less than the cost of production, is similar to Australia. It demonstrates that the modern supply chain is not sustainable; it threatens the viability of farmers and our Agri-Culture.
