              'I'm going plastic free next month, who wants to join me?' When Rebecca Prince-Ruiz asked this question in 2011, she had no idea that nine years later they would result in a global movement of 250 million people in 177 countries committed to reducing single-use plastic. No one wa...nts to see an environment smothered in plastic, but what can we do? How do we move from awareness and concern to action? Plastic Free tells the inspiring story of how a simple community initiative grew into one of the world's most successful environmental movements. It shares stories of people from around the world who have taken on the Plastic Free July challenge and made it their own. At its heart, Plastic Free is a book about positive change and how small actions can make a huge impact, no matter who you are or where you are from. Find out how you can make a real difference to your household, your workplace, your school, your community, and your environment, one step - and piece of plastic - at a time.

              Australians have always loved to step out in nature, whether off-track or along a marked route. Bushwalking - an organised long-distance walk in rugged terrain that requires maps and camping equipment, or a family day out - is one of our most popular pastimes. This landmark book,... now updated, was the first to delve into its rich and sometimes quirky history. From the earliest days of European settlement, colonists found pleasure in leisurely strolls through the bush, collecting flowers, sketching, bird watching and picnicking. Yet over time, walking for the sake of walking became the dominant motive. Walking clubs proliferated, railways organised mystery hikes attended by thousands, and Paddy Pallin established his equipment business. Bushwalking - serious walking - was invented. Whether you are inclined to put on your walking boots and pack your sleeping bag, or would rather stay in a luxury hut, this sure-footed and witty book reveals how the ordinary act of walking can become extraordinary. '...a splendid social history, one so entertaining and revealing that you wonder why it hasn't been done before.' - Amanda Lohrey 'Slip this book in your swag - and step into adventure.' - Tom Griffiths

              Net Privacy: How we can be free in an age of surveillance

              Net Privacy: How we can be free in an age of surveillance (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Billion-dollar fines for Facebook. Cambridge Analytica. Edward Snowden. Apps on our smartphones tracking our every move. Privacy may be a defining issue of our age, but it is also one of the least understood. Our digital world confuses what we know about privacy - what is public,... what is private. Do old ethical and legal norms apply to new, digital media? How did the conditions of privacy become so uncertain that we are unsure about our own right to privacy? What can protect us from allowing corporations, governments, hackers and insidious websites to know more about us than we want them to? Rigorous and engaging, this book examines the minutiae of our digital lives while drawing on a philosophy of ethical and legal frameworks based on the thinking of philosopher Immanuel Kant. With a firm eye on the cutting edge of digital developments, Sacha Molitorisz outlines a robust model of individual consent. Of urgent importance, this book spells out conceptual and practical steps to ensure our shared future is not dystopian. It shows not only that informed privacy is fundamental to us as individuals, but that in the digital world we need an enforceable regulatory framework to secure our relationships with others and to safeguard our democracies.
