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.
