Less is More. Our local economy at war with the planet.

Nov 21, 2019

Experts, economists, tourism bosses and local school students combine to share the same message - we need to act now, and act decisively, if we want to make a difference to the effects of climate change in our district. The verdict is "We have to have a smaller economy if we don't want to kill the planet." The voices in this mini-documentary include the outgoing boss of Destination Queenstown Graham Budd - he joins the chorus of those preaching sustainability - but can we reconcile that with the massive growth happening here every day? Our local council has declared a climate crisis - and yet their plans for growth continue with apparently little or no change.
