James Fowler

James is passionate about improving the way in which Australia manages sustainable development and believes that greater strategy is required to achieve long term sustainable growth.

James’ hobbies include rock climbing, scuba diving, carpentry/blacksmithing, gardening and socialising with friends and family (usually in playing board games).
