Griffith Review 63: Writing the Country.

Griffith Review 63: Writing the Country

Edited by Ashley Hay

The natural environment is under threat. Climate change is changing the earth faster and more profoundly than predicted. We need to act urgently to preserve and protect complex ecosystems. To flourish we need to work with nature.

Reusable shopping bags and Keep Cups are now on trend, yet entrenched human behaviour continues to impact our planet's remaining natural splendour, and climate change alters the Earth's ecosystems faster than predicted. Seabirds consume plastic, glaciers in East Antarctica melt, species' habitats disappear--as are so many species themselves--and Australia's greenhouse emissions continue to rise. As the potential for intervention appears to be tangled up in political and economic agendas, the need to renew our approach to our relationship with our world becomes more urgent. What strategies can we deploy to continue our conversation with where we live, as our environments change so dramatically?

Writing The Country inspires optimism: our places are not yet lost.
