Economic Growth is a substitute for Equality of Income!

We’re overusing the earth’s finite resources, and yet excessive consumption is failing to improve our lives. “Enough Is Enough” lays out a visionary but realistic alternative to the perpetual pursuit of economic growth—an economy where the goal is enough, not more.

Prehen Woods Planning Appeal - support needed

Dear friends

Just to let you know that because the promised independent review of the Prehen Woods case has not yet been conducted, we have been lobbying to get the proposed Planning Appeals Commission appeal suspended or postponed. Initially there were some indications that this might happen, but as we have not yet had confirmation of a suspension or postponement of the appeal we think that it would be wise for everyone to prepare their statements in support of the revocation of…
