Luke Chamberlain is The Wilderness Society’s Victorian Forest Campaigner. Luke’s role is to educate the public about the role that forest and ecosystems play in the international carbon cycle and to advocate for the protection of these critical natural systems. Luke works at all levels of government to advocate for the correct accounting of forest ecosystems in Australia’s national carbon accounts.

The Wilderness Society is a national, community-based, environmental advocacy organisation whose purpose is to protect, promote and restore wilderness and natural processes across Australia for the survival and ongoing evolution.

Luke will talk about the value of nature in economic terms, and the opportunities that we have in Victoria to reframe our view of nature rather than as something to exploit or own. He will provide international examples of where this is occurring, and how the overall benefit is much greater than the economic benefit of exploitation.

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday the 3rd November from 6 – 8pm.

Melbourne Sustainability Drinks is held at Feddish, in Federation Square. In order to fit in with many of your transport plans, we have been fortunate enough to secure a venue at Federation Square, merely meters away from Melbourne Sustainability Drinks previous home.  Please note that it is essential to RSVP every month. Due to the ever increasing popularity of the event, it may not be possible to accommodate people who do not RSVP.  (http://www.melbournesustainabilitydrinks.com/rsvp)

This is not a sponsored event; i.e. you buy your own drinks, as we choose to come together in the spirit of a shared interest.
