I am on a journey of education, discovery and adventure. With the profound possibilities and opportunities that the Resource Based Economy offers, we can now choose a better pathway for ourselves and the planet.

Care for the most vulnerable, our ‘canary in the coal mine’. If they’ve problems, so have we.

Discuss new solutions. With so many problems, it’s time to consider new alternatives. There’s heaps.

Open up the conversation. Let’s hear from all parts of our society. Everyone’s input is needed now.
