Recently at the G20 I had the opportunity to represent the AGDF (Australian Green Development Forum) and talk about sustainable urban farming.
The AGDF has been in operation since 2002 and has become an important knowledge centre for sustainability and green professional development in Australia.
Our board is made up of representatives from BCC, University of Queensland and Griffith University, property developers, architects, town planners and Queensland government departments who are passionate about sustainable development.
We promote Positive Development and carbon positive development strategies following the principles developed by Professor Janis Birkeland, the author of Positive Development.
These principles encourage green walls , indoor air quality, urban food growing and an integrated vegetation approach to property development.
It was a great honour to be involved in such a level of talks and I look forward to sharing more on the nature of the talks.
