In the past few weeks Earth Matters has been hearing about different ways to communicate around climate change, through the visual arts, through climate fiction, and through psychology and the social sciences. This week, we hear from Tony Birch. a creative writer and teacher who's been working with young people in Melbourne, to help them express and explore their environment. Tony is also exploring his own and others Indigenous history and philosophy, to understand First Nations' resilience to environmental and social change, and how that might encourage the broader community to respond and adapt to climate change. We also have an update on the Abbott government's continuing attack on Environmental Defenders Offices around Australia.
