Last Chance: Back From The Brink HiveMind

This is the last chance to add statements to the Biodiversity HiveMind public engagement before it closes on 22 September.

Get in quick if you have ideas or proposals to add to the HiveMind conversation on protecting and restoring biodiversity in Aotearoa New Zealand. The last day for adding statements is 11 September 2019.

More people have taken part in this HiveMind than any of our previous projects.

Over 430 people have voted more than 21,000 times on a range of ideas and proposals, and over 90 people have added over 240 statements for other participants to consider. We extended the Biodiversity HiveMind because of this strong participation.

Scoop and PEP would like to thank everyone who has taken part so far. We invite you all to return to the HiveMind to vote on new statements and add statements for others to consider. We also ask that you encourage other people to take part.

To give you a greater sense of what is emerging from the HiveMind, we will publish an interim report next week, which is, by coincidence, Conservation Week. You will be able to see levels of support for all the statements that have been moderated into the HiveMind.

Gordon Campbell: On The Iran Aftermath

So, evidently, you can get away with murder. It looks as though a further escalation in the ongoing war between Iran and the US has been avoided – mainly thanks to Iran NOT responding in kind to the recklessly unhinged behaviour by the United States. Given the massive outpouring of public grief in Iran over the murder of Qassem Soleimani, some reciprocal action by Iran was necessary, but (so far) it has been almost entirely symbolic in nature...

Gordon Campbell: On The Aussie Bush Fires And Suleimani

In popular culture, Australia is often portrayed as Western civilisation’s last unspoiled frontier, or as its final refuge from planetary disaster. In Nevil Shute’s best-selling 1950s novel On The Beach for instance, Melbourne served as the backdrop ... More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Scotland’s Renewed Independence Battle

Brexit has always been very much an English obsession... So while it isn’t surprising that Boris Johnson won the election, he might also have lost the United Kingdom in the process. More>>
