Demolish your front fence. It would be an act of radical kindness

A few years ago, I reflected on years of doctoral field-notes documenting the homes of tinkerers — people with an extraordinary commitment to DIY living. It occurred to me that despite their DIY skills, few of these tinkerers had built or maintained front fences. In a culture where fences are fixtures in the urban landscape, these people tended not to have clear boundaries between their homes and the street, and their gardens spilled into civic space. This might be significant at a time of populist momentum to “build a wall” between nation-states, and when 65 million refugees are seeking new…

An incredible journey: the first people to arrive in Australia came in large numbers, and on purpose

The size of the first population of people needed to arrive, survive, and thrive in what is now Australia is revealed in two studies published today. It took more than 1,000 people to form a viable population. But this was no accidental migration, as our work shows the first arrivals must have been planned.

No Plastics A No Brainer – Plastic Free July Challenge

Plastic is a useful and valuable material, but the global ‘disposable culture’ of using once and disposing of plastic is contributing to an environmental crisis. Contemplate this: Virtually every piece of plastic ever manufactured still exists in some form today and plastic production has been projected to increase by 40% increase in the next decade. The Plastic Free July movement aligns with and helps organisations implement the UN Sustainable Development goals and aims to empower a social change to cut the demand for single-use plastics. Reducing waste and recycling is significantly more energy efficient than piling up landfill or trying…
