UTAS Sustainability is sponsoring two talks by Nicole Foss in conjunction with Transition Tasmania, Peak Oil Tasmania and Sustainable Living Tasmania.  We will also be launching the start of UTAS developing our own Peak Oil Risk Assessment and Response Report, which is being developed with student and staff, Peak Oil Tasmania, and other experts.

An impending crisis? Many assure us there is. What are the issues and opportunities for Tasmania?

How can we prepare and respond to ensure we ‘keep the lights on’ both metaphorically and physically?

Come and explore the interrelated issues of finance, energy, resources, environment, psychology, population and real politik that make up our current multi-faceted predicament. An explanation of why we find ourselves in a state of crisis and what we can do about it.
