Investigating sustainability in a Tasmanian community through the lived experience of local secondary school students
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis takes the reader on a journey to the Tasman Peninsula, a small and remote district in Tasmania, Australia. I enter the community through the local school, where I work with Grade Nine classes to explore prospects of sustainability in their community through the students’ lived experiences. The inquiry develops propositions that model Isaac Newton’s Laws of Motion as a basis for understanding community dynamics in times of external forces that threaten community sustainability.
