Reassessing the environmetnal record of the Soviet Union

2017 marks the centenary of the October revolution in Russia that ultimately brought the Bolsheviks to power and lead to the formation of the Soviet Union.
When we think of the USSR we often think of environmental and human tragedy. But 100 years on from the 1917 revolution it is perhaps more important than ever to re-assess the environmental record of the Soviet Union and learn from the radical thinkers, scientists and ecologists who offered a different vision for humans relationship with nature.

Guest: Professor Arran Gare (Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne)
