Economics & Us

Our day to day acts of work, leisure and consumption connect us, in more ways than we know, to the big issues of poverty, injustice and ecological decline in the world. If we are to take responsibility for our impact, we need to begin to disentangle the complex web of the economic systems we live in and depend upon.

Ecology in Crisis

If we take seriously the command to love our neighbour and to care for creation, then there is no more urgent challenge than to address the multi-dimensional ecological crisis that now grips the planet.

Poverty, Aid & Development

What happens in the developing world is intimately connected to what happens in the developed world. Unfortunately, addressing poverty is not just as simple as sending money overseas.

Responsible Consumption

If we want to care for others and care for the planet, then we need to put our money where our mouth is. Your dollar is your vote!

Indigenous Communities

Although a wealthy, highly developed country, Australia’s indigenous communities continue to suffer from deeply entrenched and persistent disadvantage. Reconicliation must include the restoration of a meaningful economy to indigenous peoples.
