Every Friday I post some links to articles, videos or other resources that have caught my eye during the week. Some might be quite recent, but others might be older articles I have revisited or recently discovered. They mainly focus on families, community engagement or environmental sustainability, but not necessarily.

Families

Intimate brutality: the epidemic of domestic violence from Radio National (ABC radio)

Community engagement

Nurturing Democracy: Shellharbour Forum (a forum with political candidates run by school students) from Darcy Moore

Reflections on the Catalytic Role of an Outsider in Asset-Based Community Development from Terry Bergdall

Sustainability

Let’s call it: 30 years of above average temperatures means the climate has changed from The Conversation by Richard Rood

Limits to growth from ABC Radio, Ockham’s Razor
