To celebrate World Environment Day the Green Living Centre will be hosting a free screening of Regenerating Australia, the latest film from Damon Gameau. The film asks the question: What would Australia look like by 2030 if we simply listened to the needs of its people?

Regenerating Australia is a 17-minute short film based on a four-month interview process with a diverse group of Australians who shared their hopes and dreams for the country’s future. It is a new story for our nation: a story of empowerment. A story of solutions. A story of regeneration.

Set on New Year’s Eve of December 2029, a news anchor is ending the nightly bulletin with a look back at the decade ‘that could be’. A decade that saw Australia transition to a fairer, cleaner, more community focused economy. The film is a construction of hypothetical news reports and press conferences featuring real journalists, politicians, business leaders and citizens – featuring Kerry O’Brien, Sandra Sully, Tim Flannery, Larissa Behrendt, David Pocock and other well-known voices.

After watching the film there will be a facilitated question and comments session and there will be time for participants to work with others to develop a personal action plan.

We will then hear from Inner West community members who are taking action and we will introduce details of Council’s next round of Environment Grants.

Watch the film trailer.
