Hello, and welcome to “the shape of things to come”. This is a place to share and grow ideas about how to build the kind of future I’d like to see: one that’s environmentally and economically sustainable, socially connected, joyful and meaningful.
My name’s Toni. I’m an ecologist, amateur photographer and idealist. Currently spending a year in Peru, working as a volunteer in sustainable natural resource management, I’m an adopted Tasmanian, calling Hobart home. The big city of Lima is a long way away from the calm and astounding natural beauty of my wild island, but I’m fortunate to be living in culture rich in traditions and slowly becoming fluent in my chosen second language. It’s an interesting and challenging place to be.
I write about my adventures and experiences in trying to live a more sustainable life, drawing on personal experience and my scientific training. We only get one shot at life and I believe it’s important to make the most of the opportunities that come my way to put my values and beliefs into practice.
Thank you for reading. Please comment and share your ideas for building the future you’d like to see.
