Frank De Jong – Tools of Sustainability Tour
July 13 – Aug 3
Melbourne – Sydney – Auckland – Full Tour Itinerary

Frank De Jong, leader of the Ontario Greens (Canada), will be touring to discuss and demonstrate the economic tools the planet so desperately needs. Frank has a long history of campaigning, having competed in 12 Canadian elections over 20 years. He is renowned in Canada for having coined the term ‘the invisible green hand’ of market forces.

Frank will bring to audiences a positive message on how we can stay ahead of the greenwashing brigade. What are the latest sustainability trends in the Northern Hemisphere? How can we lobby for more environmentally efficient economic policy? Isn’t that true conservatism?

Beyond economic theory, Frank loves getting his hands dirty, having led protests against the largest nuclear power station in North America (Darlington), been arrested in Northern Ontario’s old growth forests and cycled through much of Canada.

Frank is an engaging speaker, making economics easy to understand.

Alanna Hartzok & Earth Rights for all

Over 12 talks and 450 plus people heard Alanna’s core message –

“We all have an equal right and a birth right to the Earth. The earth has a biological & ecological right to its future too. We are promoting a new form of property rights where what you build with your own hands, what you labour for, is your private property. You shouldn’t be taxed for something productive you are doing. What we are saying is that the gifts of nature, the land & natural resources of the earth belong to we the people. We all deserve a fair share of the profits from these natural gifts. This is a natural form of public finance policy”
