For many years, Ted Trainer has taught limits to growth at UNSW.
His book, 'Abandon Affluence', offered a critique of overconsumption many years before the idea became popular. Ted has influenced many and his Pigface Point property in Sydney has served as an educational venue for students of his university course as well as for permaculture people.
