As we head towards 2050 and beyond, our society will be faced with many challenges.
Climate change, food security, equality, justice, health and welfare challenges are but a few. Here I share my thoughts and observations about many current and continuing issues. I would be pleased to receive your feedback and I invite you to join me in the conversations.
Introduction: It is no secret I have a keen interest in politics; locally, nationally and internationally. For the most part my background is unremarkable, but I will say that from an early age I have been inquisitive and hugely interested in people, democracy and in my (our) environment and the environment.
Where I have found my understanding of issues to be limited or knowledge-gaps needing to be filled, I have sought answers.Importantly, where a once tightly held view has been influenced by my new learnings, I have freely acknowledged and disclosed my change in view (Medical Cannabis being a case in point).
It is my privilege to introduce you to Kate Fulton as my guest blogger.
