Attended a meeting tonight of the Wynnum/Manly Regional Development Partnership. I am thinking of becoming a member and also joining a steering commitee to organise the development of an eco-centre on the Manly foreshore. Requires planning, funding, creativity.
All good stuff – just wish I had more time to dedicate to the ‘good stuff’. I’m leaning towards doing it, but I’m also leaning towards saving Moreton Bay.
That said, it starts with education and valuing the bay and that’s what the eco-centre will hopefully provide to the community – rather than just tourists for the sake of tourists, progress for the sake of progress and population growth just for the sake of population growth. And more money in the back pockets of a select few.
