A Green New Deal for Victoria
Friends of the Earth are putting together a paper, A Green New Deal for Victoria. It is a first attempt to articulate how we think Victoria can and should respond to the coming crisis of the recession, climate change and peak oil. They have done this as a blog to invite your feedback and involvement in developing this document. There is a huge amount of excellent thinking in the community about how to deal with these issues, and this is an attempt at collaborative, community-based approaches to developing solutions. FoE welcome your thoughts and suggestions on how to improve this document. Please send feedback before May 18. You can find it at: http://greennewdeal.wordpress.com/
