SPA newsletter 147 – May 2022

In this issue you will find a report on the recent Fenner Conference on sustainable agriculture including the closing address by our Patron Ian Lowe.

You will also find an article on how cities are rapidly encroaching on the Earth’s biodiversity republished from the PNAS journal. There are two book reviews: one on the biography of steady state economist Herman Daly, and another that is strongly related on ‘Sustainability and the New Economics’, edited by two people strongly connected to SPA.

Following those is the national president’s report that was delivered at the AGM on 19 March in Canberra, an obituary to SA member Bruce Dinham, and proposed changes to the SPA constitution.

There are reports from the six branches as well as from the Communications’ Manager and we also wish Paul Ehrlich a happy 90th birthday!
