When in Rome!!

Rome is considered by some to be the birthplace of democracy! So it is with some irony that the "Club of Rome", a member of the high profile global think tank should join the long line of advisors to speak out against local government amalgamation.

Dr Kieth Suter is a futurist, economic and social planner, author and of course a member of the "Club of Rome". Dr Suter said "super shires" were not suitable for Queensland and pointed to the failure of Victorian local government amalgamation. Dr Suter recently spoke on the "Politics of Climate Change"at the Qld government's Natural Resource Conference in Brisbane.
