Very welcome tomorrow – we are delighted to have friends joining us from Japan and beyond!
Also, we look forward to your participation on Thursday 18 November for a day event that bring together activists and researchers (nationally/internationally) who have been engaging in Earth Unbound dialogues over the last two years. We are hoping this might be a blended symposium (with food and fun!) held at Deakin Downtown, Melbourne, but who knows with Covid cases rising! More details to follow.
