A Blog Within a Blog: Latest Posts on GenA

We’ve started the ball rolling over at Generation Adaptation. The first six posts are;

Eco-Mapping, Part 1: What is Eco-Mapping?

Back in 2007, I contributed to the South Australian EPA’s State of the Environment Report in which I provided a collection of supporting information, case studies and accumulated other work of interest and media which I sourced from other individuals. One of the people I approached was busy working with industry heads to promote “Eco-Mapping”. […]

Generation Adaptation: beyond “left”, beyond “right” and beyond broken discourses

What is “Generation Adaptation”? A new demographic dreamed up by marketers? Not quite. Generation Adaptation (“Gen A” for short) is a blog, but hopefully one that does not simply recycle the same tired arguments and information about climate change and environmental issues. Gen A was conceived to help move the discussion beyond the dispiriting debate […]

Eco-Mapping, Part2: Water Loss

The most obvious source of criticism questions if prevention is more cost effective than cure. We’ve all heard similar colloquial arguments relating to solar set-ups taking too long to recoup the initial outlay or that water tanks are installed with little practical use applied (in my current rental this is certainly the case where it […]

As always, we’d really like this to be a project for everyone, so feel free to contact us with post ideas, articles you have written and would like reposted, suggestions about how we could make the site better, links you think we should know about and relevant events in the near future that you would like others to know about (and get involved in).
