Join the Blue Mountains Planetary Health Initiative at a public symposium for the Blue Mountains launch of the new book, “The Path to a Sustainable Civilisation: Technological, Socioeconomic and Political Change”, by Mark Diesendorf and Rod Taylor. Mark and a local panel will discuss how we can transition to a civilisation that’s ecologically sustainable, more socially just, and less prone to war. He will suggest strategies and policies for avoiding the business-as-usual path to collapse. Although the path to sustainability is difficult, it may still be possible. Copies of the book will be available at discount price.

Originally trained as a physicist, he broadened out into interdisciplinary energy and sustainability research. From 1996 to 2001 he was Professor of Environmental Science and Founding Director of the Institute for Sustainable Futures at University of Technology Sydney.
