Live and Learn - 14 December 2011

Dear Environmentality listeners,

Our regular blog coordinator is in Madagascar and as you can see we are struggling to keep up her good work. However after hearing Christian Nielsen speak again while I was editing the show this morning I decided it was time to share our guest's amazing enthusiasm and knowledge with all of you!

Christian is the Executive Director of Live and Learn Environmental Education, an organisation that I had never heard about until our lovely Pre-Production Coordinator Alicia organised the interview.

It would be fair to say that both Smokey and I were blown away by the amazing work that this organisation does in countries as diverse as Cambodia, Vietnam or Australia, and a little bit ashamed about our lack of knowledge.

One of the parts of the interview that particularly struck me was Christian's comment that the general Australian public is asleep when it comes to action on environmental sustainability. I probably had not thought about it in those terms but I have to say that I tend to agree with him. What do you think?

I see, you have not listened to the show yet... what are you waiting for?

Listen to the show!

Two shows in one article! 23 November and 7 December

Dear Environmentality listeners,

A few technical hiccups made us lose a bit of momentum with our schedule of weekly uploads and articles but hopefully we will be back on track by the end of the week.

On the 23rd of November we had a very pleasant chat with Marcelle Holdaway from Hume City Council, who was sharing the news of an exciting community environmental program called Environmental Champions Program. It's a great opportunity for Hume residents so if you are interested do apply as they still have a couple of free places!

Marcelle also talked to us about one of her areas of expertise, Social Accounting; and about an environmentally friendly house that she built many years ago.

Two weeks later we had a fantastic telephone interview with Rebecca Gillin from Planet Ark. Rebecca gave us an overview of the fantastic programs carried out by Planet Ark and she showed an impressive amount of knowledge about recycling and its benefits. We also learnt about Planet Ark's campaign for the festive season: the 12 Do's of Christmas.

Clearly this three paragraph summary does not do any justice to our two fantastic guests so why don't you listen to the shows?
