Each year, global leaders in environmental thought provide a free lecture in Hobart. The Richard Jones Memorial Lecture, as it is known, is hosted by the Richard Jones Memorial Lecture Committee, the Student Environmental Law Society and Sustainable Living Tasmania.
In nature there is no waste, rather each living thing serves a greater purpose than its own lifespan, and provides for the growth of other living things. A beautifully intricate and complex network of interactions between living things and the environment allows life to thrive on this planet. Humans, however do create waste, mountains of it every year. Corporations can only survive if they constantly expand production and market their goods effectively to create demand and profit, and the trillion dollar global advertising industry is very effective at persuading us all to buy their goods.
