Regenerating Australia Film Screening and Discussion
Merlynston Progress Hall, 1 Novian Street, Coburg North VIC Australia
Friday 06 May, 5:30pm - 8:00pm
Join us for a screening of Regenerating Australia, the new film from the team behind 2040 and That Sugar Film.
Come early for a food truck dinner from 5pm-6pm, entertainment from 5.30pm and film screening at 6pm.
The short film is directed by Damon Gameau, Regenerating Australia is a hypothetical news report based on interviews with a diverse group of Australians who were asked about their hopes and dreams for the future.
Produced in partnership with WWF-Australia, Regenerating Australia is set on New Year’s Eve 2029 and takes the form of a news bulletin looking back at the decade ‘that could be’. A decade that saw Australia transition to a fairer, cleaner, more community-focused economy.
Featuring Kerry O’Brien, Gorgi Coghlan, Sandra Sully, Tim Flannery, Larissa Behrendt, David Pocock and other well-known voices, the film is based on a four-month ‘listening campaign’ with a diverse group of Australians who shared their hopes and dreams for the country’s future.
Along with Regenerating Australia we intend to show some short motivating films, and then have a small panel of speakers to lead small group discussion in areas of energy transition, regenerative agriculture, transforming the urban built environment, and waste and recycling.
The hall has a capacity of 80 people. Registration is free, but limited. This is a Covidsafe event. We expect participants to be at least double vaxxed. If you are feeling unwell or have symptoms, please do not attend.
Bring your family & friends. And your idea.
This event is organised by Climate Action Merri-bek (CAMoreland) and Neighbours United for Climate Action (NUCA).
