In this public talk, we will share the latest climate science on where our planet is heading, discuss some of the current psychology around climate change, and offer solutions through the study of social movements.
There will be an added emphasis on local activist groups and opportunities for direct action. If you’re wanting to connect with your local community in the face of this crisis, then this event is for you. Eltham is part of the Nillumbik shire; a Green Wedge shire that acts as the ‘lungs of Melbourne’. There is plenty of opportunity to sequester carbon and protect/regenerate biodiversity in our backyard.
The talk will be followed by a community picnic by the creek (from 2pm), where we’ll have the chance to socialise and talk about our personal experiences in the face of climate emergency. The picnic will be catered (gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian options available).
Everyone is welcome and there will be time to ask questions and discuss afterwards. Entry is free. Seating is limited, please register.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
