This blog is about advancing the green agenda in Grahamstown and the Makana council area. It is a public forum, and comments policy is generally open. Comments to older articles will be moderated to discourage spam, but no comments will be deleted unless they are either clearly illegal or spam.

Some of the issues we will look at include global problems and local responses. Some examples:
  • equity – we talk about the environment as if it’s something out there but a lot of environmental concerns deeply impact the poorer parts of society
  • climate change – the science, policy options, and what we can do here
  • peak oil – the inevitable rise in costs associated with the oil economy, and what we can do to mitigate these costs locally
  • policy agenda – how we can influence local and global policy on matters of sustainability
