Mark Allen, writing a new story

 

 

This interview with Mark took place on Kaurna land, sovereignty never ceded.

The pandemic is forcing the world to change its behaviour and it’s waking us up to the fact that what we had before was just a story and that we are quite capable of writing a new one.

And we absolutely need to write a new one. It is really important that we build on the changes in behaviour that we are seeing now, so that something good and long- lasting can come out of this. We must not return to the real estate and developer driven system that we had before. There is no place for a concrete driven economy that is responsible for forty percent of emissions and forty percent of waste whilst thousands continue to struggle to find a decent home. These are the words of town planner Mark Allen who has set up 2 interwoven groups, town planning rebellion (TPR) and Holistic Activism. We only ask that you reach out and connect with us on those areas where we share common ground. Listen for more here.
