Please join us for our July volunteer movie night!!
After the overwhelming success of our May movie night, we're happy to announce that we will be back at the Climate for Change Head Office to host another volunteer movie night this July!
July is 'Plastic Free July' and as part of this we are screening 'A Plastic Ocean' - the story of journalist Craig Leeson's search for the elusive blue whale and his astonishing discovery of just how much plastic is in our waters.
In this adventure documentary, Craig teams up with free diver Tanya Streeter and an international team of scientists and researchers, and they travel to twenty locations around the world over the next four years to explore the fragile state of our oceans, uncover alarming truths about plastic pollution, and reveal working solutions that can be put into immediate effect.
Special local guest speaker TBA!
Our movie nights are a great opportunity for us all to come together for a bite, a drink, a chat and, of course, to reengage with climate change through cinema!
- Arrive from 6:00pm for wine and vegetarian nibbles
- From 6:30 we will have a brief volunteer info session, to outline upcoming roles/opportunities
- From 6:45 to 8:30 free screening of 'A Plastic Ocean'
- Followed by a group discussion around the movie!
Please RSVP ASAP to confirm catering numbers. While we do not charge for entry, a $5-10 donation covers the food costs.WHENJuly 18, 2018 at 6pmWHEREdonkey wheel house

“I've been truly surprised by the lasting impact of my gathering amongst friends who were previously silent on the issue – we are still talking about it nine months on!” – Jarrod, host
Most Australians are concerned about climate change, but are confused and overwhelmed - they don't know how Australia should respond or what they personally can do.
Social research shows that we make sense of confusing information and decide what to do about it through conversations with people we know and trust.
So we've taken the party-plan model and adapted it to allow meaningful discussions about climate change to happen at scale.
We start with a host, who invites friends to their home. We send a trained facilitator to present information, answer questions and facilitate a discussion about climate change.
At the end of the discussion, we invite guests to join us in taking regular action. We also invite guests to host their own Conversation with their friends, so we can grow exponentially!
“I was pretty nervous to host ...But as soon as the night started ... it was really nice to see that everyone was impacted like I was even though climate change may not be a regular discussion amongst the people who came. I was also really excited that only one of the nine people I invited didn’t come. I feel re-inspired to act on climate change.”
– Carli, host
Hosts provide food and drinks for their guests; a trained facilitator does the rest. The ideal Conversation size is 8-12 people. (The minimum number of guests for a productive discussion is four.)
