Now in its second year, the Green Light Report provides this community pulse-check, monitoring the trends and changes occurring in the environmental attitudes and behaviours within Victorian households. The 2009 Report shows that Victorians remain 'very concerned' about the environment, despite the global financial crisis dramatically changing the economic environment and likely to shape events for some time to come. Victorians are continuing to pursue a number of sustainable behaviours in their homes including taking short showers, growing their own fruit and vegetables and installing rainwater tanks and compact fluorescent light globes in their homes.

Networks, innovation and public policy : politicians, bureaucrats and the pathways to change inside government /

by Considine, Mark.

Publisher: New York, NY Palgrave Macmillan 2009Description: xvi, 231 p. ; 23 cm.Notes: Formerly CIP. Includes bibliographical references and index.Summary: "Drawing on a major quantitative and qualitative study, involving almost 800 actors and their networks, this book examines the different normative approaches politicians, bureaucrats and community actors use to frame the innovation puzzle, arguing that these create specific cultures of innovation. Combining public policy with social network analysis, the authors explore the role of formal institutions and informal networks in promoting and impeding governmental innovation. It shows conclusively that networks matter more than any other single attribute, shaping local cultures in governments and marking out differences in the way politicians and bureaucrats address innovation inside government."--BOOK JACKET.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

While recent growth in Victoria has been stronger than the other non-resource states, this has been partly driven by strong population growth, masking dwindling growth in productivity and in per capita GDP-the main determinants of growth in living standards. Further challenges are posed by the prospect of a sustained commodities boom maintaining a high Australian dollar and upward pressure on domestic process, threatening the competitiveness of Victorian exports. These factors intensify the need to pursue a reform program to enhance the State?s competitiveness.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
