Libby Robin Featured on ABC's "Rear Vision"


Former RCC Visiting Scholar Libby Robin was interviewed on the latest Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s (ABC) “Rear Vision” program, which explores the birth of Australia’s modern Environment Movement in the 1960–70s. Robin speaks about the Little Desert campaign, which pushed back against a proposal to turn sensitive bushland into an agricultural development. Thanks to a coordinated effort, this proposal was eventually overturned. Listen to the full program here.
