Lovins returns to Australia in 2005
This tour provided the opportunity to
continue to develop the relations and partnerships formed
as part of the 2004 tour and to engage with a new round
of leaders in sustainability across the Country. The
focus was on regional areas and Hunter traveled to the
Central Coast (Gosford), Sydney, Ballina, Byron Bay,
Northern Rivers, Melbourne, Currumbin Valley, Brisbane,
Townsville, Canberra and of course Alice Springs.
The focus of the 2005 tour was the idea of 'Sustainable
Business Practice', looking at a program co-developed
by TNEP and Hunters team at Natural Capitalism Inc to
operationally assist organisations to transition towards
sustainability, while highlighting the role of government
and civil society. This material is part of Hunter's
teachings at Presidio World College, offering the first
accredited MBA program in Sustainable Management.
Hunter undertook a series
of public lectures from audiences of 1000 in Townsville
to small groups in Gosford. Hunter was able to meet
with and talk to a range of people active in implementing
natural capitalism using various strategies.
