Nick Aberle is the Campaigns Manager for Environment Victoria and his measured view about how we address the climate crisis gives me hope.
Nick, who has been with Environment Victoria for six years was among the many who gathered recently to acknowledge and celebrate EV's fiftieth anniversary celebrations, a rare event Nick says for an environmental group.
Nick and I sat down to chat at EV's office which is located in the Australian Conservation Foundation's "Green Building" in Leicester St in Melbourne. The green building is populated by organizations of a similar ilk to that of EV, is wonderfully open and has a striking collegiate feel about it.
Visitors can tour the building and have all the green attributes of the complex explained.
