“Going green and keeping cool” – Michael Mobbs and Fremantle on the ABC

Last Friday’s 7.30 WA on the ABC was called “Going green and keeping cool” and focused on the recent visit by Michael Mobbs and the impacts these ideas are having on Fremantle and fabulous streets like Hulbert Street in South Fremantle. It also features Shani Graham and I.

Michael has some creative ideas about how to cool out cities through cooling our streets by filling verges with trees, fruit and vegetables. Hulbert Streets is doing this already and I look forward to seeing more of it in the heart Fremantle.

Enjoy the clip

    I’m with you goldaccount …and in the burbs too where most of us live!
    However, most of the ‘lawful citizenry’ need our Councils firstly to formally acknowledge the legitimacy of ‘public land for public benefit’ that greening and sustaining models like the Mobbs mob’s :)
