Two great pieces of work head up this months Newsletter
ACF/ACTU – Creating Jobs Cutting Pollution
Action to reduce pollution can go hand-in hand with job creation and a prosperous and environmentally healthy Australia. As this report Creating Jobs – Cutting Pollution demonstrates, Australia could create more than 770,000 extra jobs by 2030 by taking strong action now to reduce pollution. The jobs identified are not just “green collar” jobs, but new jobs in traditional industries such as agriculture, mining, manufacturing and the services sector.

Towards the Circular Economy
Many of you are no doubt aware that the model of traditional growth is unsustainable and that the expected additional 3 billion middle class consumers arising as a result of the economic revolution underway in China and India only makes the forecast more dire. This report provides a mainstream economic solution which was presented at the 2013 World Economic Forum in Davos. It has some really heavy weight support and offers a glimmer of hope for a solution based around ending raw material consumption and embracing recycling. Towards the circular economy
Finally for the more visual here is an interesting cartoon with a clear message about how to convince the uncommitted whether the issue is refugees or climate change or whatever.
