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 living in Melbourne, Australia, I’m undertaking postgraduate study and skilling myself up to contribute more to the world I’d like to see. My journey into sustainability has taken me from my beautiful adopted home of Hobart, Tasmania, to the other side of the globe in Lima, Peru, and now to Melbourne. You can read about my time in Peru _on this page_, or use the category tags to find posts on subjects that interest you. There’s also a page for useful links to other voices and resources for conversations about sustainability and how we can participate in growing a brighter future.
I write about my adventures and experiences in trying to live a more sustainable life and the lessons learnt along the way. I draw on both personal experience and my scientific training, and now that I’m back at uni I’m certain there will be many discussions focussed around my studies too. 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.
