We Know You Care


The political storm over renewables making news these past weeks once again highlights the urgency of protecting the things we care about. The current local and global targets undermine our safety and put our environment at grave risk. We know we are living in a dangerous climate right now and there is no carbon budget left – 1.5 degrees of warming is not a safe target.

Over the last 17 years our Festival event partners, performers and educators have joined us to celebrate the message that together, we can create a sustainable environment and safe climate.

We know that you care about the big issues. So as climate emergency continues to threaten our ability to secure a sustainable world, we want to help you amplify your message – in new ways and to new audiences.

In 2017 the Festival stands at the edge of Australia’s biggest moment in history. We have the potential to create a great transition and protect the things we care about. But we need to mobilise our communities to demand the means to enable lifestyles that will urgently stop the warming and safely cool the planet.

Join with the Festival and help build the critical mass we need to create a new narrative for our movement.

What do we care about and what do we want to protect?
What is the climate reality & true impacts that threaten what we care about?
What key parts of our society & economy need to rapidly transition & by when?
How can we form the biggest movement in history to make it happen?
