Australian Collaboration

A range of free scholarly resources is available on a newly launched web site the Australian Collaboration. "The overall aim of the Australian Collaboration is to help to achieve an integrated and sustainable ecological, social, cultural and economic environment in and outside Australia."

To achieve this aim the consortium is keen to provide web resources to enable informed public debate on the big issues facing our nation today, See Democracy Watch page.

Resources available include essays, books, fact and issue sheets on Australian societal and environmental issues and study guides for schools on a broad range of topics e.g.
- Australian population characteristics
- climate change and energy, biodiversity
- land degradation and water
- culture
- economics
- government and business
- human wellbeing and fairness
- Indigenous Australia

Well worth a look.
