Floriade innovation competition - mixed message much

Curious companions here – the ABC is running a “sustainability” and innovation competition where the prize is, er, not-so-sustainable flights to Canberra and Floriade, and it’s illustrated with a photo featuring electricity-wastrel Floriade in all its delightful glory. The winner will be chosen from entrants who will outline the “most pressing sustainability issue facing Australians”. Add to the contradiction, the “sustainability” of trucking a million bulbs into the ACT from down south …

Saving grace: the winners will be staying at the Novotel, which has a bit of a track record volunteering at the Arboretum.

So, will you be identifying radio station based competitions as the “most pressing sustainability issue facing Australians”?

Floriade is terrific and a great boost to the ACT economy is what I think!
