Ward off Climate Change

About the author


Gary Warden was raised in the Perth Hills. After graduating from the University of Western Australia with a degree in Geology, Gary joined BHP Billiton where he spent 18 years working in a variety of roles in a number of locations around the world. Prior to leaving BHP Billiton in December 2006, Gary was Global Manager for the company's US$1Billion business improvement program.

While he was originally sceptical about the claims relating to climate change, he became convinced of the urgency of the issue in early 2006. He left BHP Billiton primarily to spend more time with his young family, but also to dedicate himself to creating a more sustainable life for himself and his family and to support others in making that change.

In September 2007 he was trained by Al Gore and has delivered the "Inconvenient Truth" lectures to thousands of west australians since then. In November 2007 Gary ran for the senate in the Federal Election representing the Climate Change Coalition.

In addition to his climate change lectures, he has facilitated Living Smart workshops across Perth. Between 2008 and 2009 he was on the Executive Committee of the Conservation Council of Western Australia including one year as Vice President.

Gary co-founded and is Executive Director of the very exciting Days of Change program, one of the largest sustainability programs in Australia and is now General Manager WA for Eco-Kinetics, one of the largest Solar PV companies in Australia and subsidiary of ASX-listed CBD Energy.

Friends of the Environment Launches New Website

by Gary 4/2/2008 6:13:00 PM

Friends of the Environment (FOTE) have launched their new website www.fote.org.au

FOTE is a not-for-profit multidisciplinary organisation dedicated to supporting the teaching of environmental, cultural and social sustainability.

I was lucky enough to become aware of the activities of FOTE in September last year and have been working to support them at a number of levels (see story).

Many thanks to Claire Botman from Zetatech for the excellent work she has done in helping to get the website up and running. If you're looking for IT support, then you can't do any better than Claire. Check out their website at http://zeta.com.au/home/welcome.aspx

Thanks also to Richard Joyce from FOTE who has loaded up much of the information on the FOTE website.

If you know any teachers, please let them know of this helpful resource.
