Environment policy: standing on principles

6 Nov 2006
Description

This paper by Geoff McAlpine outlines the principles that could underpin more effective responses to our many environmental challenges. Although a mere snapshot of ‘eco-philosophy’, this article aims to provoke a broader discussion of the quest for better, values-based environmental policies by: listing four key characteristics of 'the environment'; connecting these with the values in New Matilda's proclamation Reclaiming our Common Wealth: policies for a fair and sustainable future; noting key environmental challenges for elaboration in future articles; and suggesting principles for environmental policies and tools for programs.
