Left Australia on 7th april for a three month study tour looking at co-housing and connection with climate change. For me these two things are inseparable as it was due to climate change urgency that I made the fateful decision to go with the co-housing concept that became Murundaka. This entailed moving out and letting the home my girls and I had enjoyed for just on twenty years be bulldozed. It was big. I still miss my old garden, the little orchard, the chooks and the ducks. But what came in its place on three adjoining blocks of land in Heidelberg Melbourne is part of the rapid transformative change that is needed – especially in the suburbs – if we are to steer a course away from dangerous climate change. This trip is about visiting communities, learning from them and presenting to them and also trying to track down those rare individuals who can talk comfortably and enthusiastically about restoring safe climate conditions and whose work is focussed on this goal. Without a lot of planning in place we – my friend, ex partner and fellow innovator, Iain and I – flew from Melbourne direct to Edinburgh, Scotland, and the adventure began.
