Message: 'Australia's Landscape Managers Can Lead the World in Climate Recovery'
Peter Andrews OAM, Chair, The Australian Landscape Science Institute (TALS Institute), 22 December 2019
“Australia has the incredible blueprint to lead the world in climate change recovery.
All the information we need is here, from the tropics to temperate zones.
The basic patterns and principles of productivity are embedded in the ancient Australian landscape.
We can use these elementary designs to rebuild healthy landscapes and turn cities into rainforests.
Examples exist right across the country, using sunlight, gravity and water to achieve sustainable growth
- by capturing, filtering and recycling nutrients.
The problems are complex, but the solutions are simple, and it all starts by growing a plant.
We must now recognise the greatest opportunity
that will benefit ourselves and the world.”
