History and future of the global Energy Transition 2016 – 2017 in pictures and charts. This presentation, to accompany the publication of the updated edition of The Winning of The Carbon War, is downloadable in 3 parts: As powerpoints or PDFs. The powerpoint slides contain source urls in the notes. The book does not have embedded urls, so hopefully this is a useful additional resource. Feel free to use the powerpoint anyway you see fit, if you wish. You can extract whatever slides you like, and edit your way. My main rationale in all this is to help get the message out for those of us worried about climate change.  http://www.jeremyleggett.net/…/the-history-and-future-of-t…/  SRD says: "Read his book or just flip through the slides, Jeremy has been there and tells it all as it is..."

Have you seen SRD's new website that showcases and develops
the role of Responsible Design.

Many ideas across multiple disciplines, have a good look...
​SRD encourages multi-disciplinary Responsible Design thinking and practice and now a full makeover of the SRD website  srd.org.au​ is ready to review and refer to your colleagues. Check your areas of interest and expertise for the latest developing ideas.  The old site still remains as a historical reference archive.srd.org.au  email remains as: srd@srd.org.au

​​​Thank you for your interest. There are many global issues that will only be advanced when Responsible Design is embodied into the ongoing change process. Ensuring tangible benefits for humanity and ecology are infused with our lifestyle is the simple message. Putting that into practice worldwide is understandably no simple task. The many ideas, directions and links above will assist.  

All SRD News feedback is welcome, as are New Memberships and Renewals. archive.srd.org.au/memberf.htm
