Coal seam gas-Discussion Paper
The coal seam gas industry has become the focus of an increasingly polarised debate in recent years, raising issues with environmental, social, political, economic and pastoral implications. The Diocesan SRC has recently completed a discussion paper that provides a brief economic and political context for discussion of CSG issues, as well as an overview of issues central to the debate. The paper is intended to be a first contribution to an ongoing conversation, which will include a range of activity on this and related issues in the year to come.

What is the Food Waste Campaign all about?
The down side: food waste is a massive global problem that has negative humanitarian, environmental and financial implications.
The up side: with relative ease and a few simple changes to our habits, we can significantly shift this paradigm.
Many regional campaigns have recently been launched, echoing to the challenge of food waste at the national level and in major sectors, including hotels, restaurants, supermarkets and households. Perhaps surprisingly, one-third of all unused food in developed countries is wasted by households. Click here
