‘EcoLogic is a beauty; thoroughly researched … and packed with the kind of necessary knowledge that can help all of us better understand and take care of our truly unique and wonderful land.’ – From the foreword by Peter Garrett AM, former President Australian Conservation Foundation
Developed in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name, EcoLogic is about hopes, fears, imagination and action. It?s about redesigning the way we live and use resources to ensure a sustainable future on this planet. A world-wide push for ecological sustainability is fuelling the next great industrial revolution. What are the major issues for Australia? What are government and industry doing about it? And what can we do to protect resources, care for the environment, the economy, ourselves and tomorrow?s children? The answers can be found in this inspiring new publication. Through numerous case studies, EcoLogic looks at urban planning issues, the true cost of industry, salinity and soil degradation, water management and environmental activism. It shows how innovative design at every level of domestic, industrial and agricultural life can help us meet our needs while conserving fragile resources.

Also recommended for high school students studying Science, Design and Technology, Food Technology, HSIE, Engineering Studies, Geography, History, Agriculture, Earth and Environmental Science, Economics, Geology, Rural Technology, Society and Culture, Legal Studies and Studies in Society.
