      Hi Sue, great to hear from you. Where exactly in Australia are you? I bet you know Paul Downton. Good place to start is to take some of the surveys along the 15 ecocity conditions at http://ecocitizenworldmap.org/report/ – we’re still working on making the map much more intuitive and interactive, but it’s really helpful to get as many reports as we can.

      All the best!
      – Sven
