Show Notes

The United Tasmania Group (UTG) is globally recognised as the first ‘green’ values political party, formed by outraged community members in 1972 to counter the environmental and social injustice that was the flooding of Lake Pedder. Dr Geoff Holloway has been an activist within the UTG for years. This episode discusses the UTG, various Lake Pedder action groups, ecocentrism, tourism and of course, Lake Pedder.
