I am concerned that our thinking is so short term, and our solutions tend to treat symptoms we need to be thinking generations not years. Every decision we make to alter our landscape needs to have this filter. If we destroy our environment we destroy ourselves. Our human impact is a given, but can be in harmony if we want it to be. Good quality air is a must, good quality water is a must, nutrient dense food is a must, without these things life is grim and needs artificial support. If we design our region so that it is every ones responsibility to understand and feel connected, our actions will hopefully reflect that. As we have become more and more demanding on material wealth our connection to human and environmental health has declined, if we had truly progressed our mental and physical health would have become better without the need for medication.
These are big picture thoughts and its easy to say its more than we can tackle at a regional level but if I am close to being correct why not make our region an example to the world.
Lets treat our problems and not focus on symptoms.

With High Density Development occurring in the Fleurieu Peninsular we should be more mindful of the impact on Nature and the Harmony we as Humans have, thus ensuring our current Open Spaces are improved and maintained and any future developments are in keeping with this ethos
Far too many areas are losing Plants, Birds and Animals when they are usually the first ones to inhabit the areas, we can and must work to maintain this environment
