We traveled to Sydney on October 1 to attend the 2014 Fenner Conference on the Environment will is being held on the campus of the University of New South Wales. The conference consisted of a series of professors and Ph.D.’s from universities and environmental organizations. The topics of the conference included; ‘Why the growth economy is broken: The environmental science of endless growth’, Capitalism and the steady state economy-uneasy bedfellows, Ethics, equity and equality and Throughput and consumerism-a key element in the room. The majority of the speakers spoke about a steady state economy and the immediate steps we can take towards moving to a truly sustainable economy to advance into a sustainable future.
