Academics, activistists and some "ferals" from the grassroots movement gathered in the Japanese Room at the University of Melbourne's School of Design for the recent launch of the new book, "Degrowth in the Suburbs: A Radical Urban Imaginary" by Samuel Alexander and Brendan Gleeson.
MC for the launch was the deputy director of the Melbourne Sustaible Society Institute, Dr Sangeetha Chandra-Shekeran, who introduced both Dr Alexander and Professor Gleeson (who is the director of the MSSI) and the Australian environmental designer, ecological educator, writer and co-originator of the permaculture concept, David Holmgren, who actually launched the book.
