Subject: Questions re sustainable consumption - IISD
Dear Mr. Neil,
My name is Frederique Bertrand, I am a soon-to-be graduate from
McGill University Faculty of law, in Montr=E9al, Canada. I have been
mandated by the International Institute of Sustainable Development
(IISD) to research Australian initiatives in sustainable consumption -
regarding particularly fair trade, environment(packaging, waste
reduction), social economy, energy and recycling.
This research is part of a broader project to submit a report on
world trends in sustainable consumption, as well as suggestions for
action, to the Canadian federal government.
I have found your report Sustainable Consumption:Young Australians as
Agents of Change, and read about your wide-reaching involvements on
the IYPF website. I was hoping you would take a few minutes to answer
a couple questions via email and if possible, schedule a telephone
interview. I am faced with a ridiculous deadline (March 15th), and
greatly appreciate any help you can offer.
1)What, if any, changes in sustainable consumption trends have you
noticed in Australia over the last few years (2000-2006) - regarding,
as mentioned above, Fair Trade, Environment, Social Economy, Energy
2) What do you think are the major obstacles to sustainable
consumption in Australia and what could be done to promote it more
