Australian Broadcasting Corporation's (ABC) Matt Brown has filed a thoughtful story under the title “They Paved Paradise” for it regular program Foreign Correspondent.
Matt Brown shares his personal recollections and notes the many changes Bali has undergone since his first visit to Bali decades ago.
Center stage in his report is the rampant and uncontrolled development taking place on the island and the impact that development is having on the island’s culture and its environment.
Matt speaks with local Balinese, environmental activities and Australian expatriate Mike O’Leary of the R.O.L.E. Foundation who provides graphic evidence of the decline of the local environment and talks about his group’s efforts to achieve that distant goal of making Bali an environmentally sustainable destination.
