  • rsvped for January Movie Night 2017-12-12 20:45:39 +1100

    January Movie Night - Normal is Over

    Welcome in the new year with our very first volunteer movie night of 2018!

    On Wednesday 24 January we're excited to be screening 'Normal is Over'. 

    Normal Is Over is a compelling and visually rich film directed by award winning, and investigative TV-journalist Renée Scheltema. Her film chronicles the way humans have inadvertently imperiled our planet: species extinction, climate change, the depletion of critical natural resources, and industrial control of our food production.

    This unique documentary examines how our economic and financial system connects all these issues, and offers solutions, which could be implemented immediately, from practical everyday fixes to rethinking the overarching myths of our time.

    While this film is intended to challenge viewers on many different levels, it most of all offers hope.


    Climate for Change movie nights are an opportunity for us all to come together for a bite, a drink, a chat and, of course, to re-engage with climate change through cinema! We encourage you to bring friends, family & partners along to get involved in the conversation in this fun and relaxed environment. 

    • Arrive from 6.15pm to have first dibs at the vegetarian antipasto platters
    • From 6:30 we will have a brief volunteer info session, to outline upcoming roles/opportunities
    • From 7:00 to 8:45 we will plonk ourselves in the cinema to watch 'Normal is Over'
    • Followed by a group discussion around the movie!
    • Our booking then extends until close (10:30pm), so hanging around afterward for more chats/drinks/food is highly encouraged!

    Please RSVP ASAP to confirm catering numbers. While we do not charge for entry, a suggested $5-10 donation covers the food costs.

     *This event is open to any of our current volunteers AND volunteers-to-be, so don't be shy.

    Host a Conversation

     “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.)

    Sign up below to express your interest.

    *Our Conversations have become popular and our facilitators are quite busy; we are currently facilitating 2-3 Conversations each week. If you'd like to host a Conversation soon, it might be worthwhile signing up to become a facilitator instead.

     Having more and better conversations about climate change is one of the most effective things we can do to stop it. Climate for Change volunteer facilitators are key to making such conversations happen at a scale large enough to really shift the social climate on climate change in Australia.

    If you are looking for something meaningful and effective (and fun) to do to stop climate change, read on.

    "I used to find talking about climate change extremely confronting and had struggled to share my concerns with others. Now I have started facilitating conversations and I don't intend on stopping. The people involved with Climate for Change constantly give me the energy and buzz to keep going!" – Charles, facilitator

    “Facilitating Climate for Change gatherings has been an incredible experience. I have learnt a lot about myself and about how to have effective conversations on climate change, which has been extremely valuable. During the gatherings, it was amazing to see people learning and empowering each other to take real action and the discussions were inspirational and exhilarating.” – Oli, facilitator

    “I have been a climate activist for 10 years and given lots of talks about both the science and the emotional aspects of engagement and disengagement, but this event did both in an integrated way and was the most satisfying I have experienced.” – Carol, facilitator

    What do facilitators do?

    Climate for Change facilitators are trained to run our Conversations in people’s homes. These Conversations are part presentation, part facilitated discussion. The facilitator’s role is to help guests understand:

    • what climate change means for them and the things they care about most
    • what needs to be done to stop climate change and how quickly
    • what they can do that is most powerful and effective, then inspire them to take action.

    Being a facilitator also involves supporting hosts prior to their Conversations to ensure their success.

    The best facilitators are not climate-change experts but people who are good at listening and passionate about making a difference. Most of the climate-change information presented at a Conversation is shown in a video; we provide training and ongoing support for everything else.

    We ask facilitators to commit 3-5 hours a week for a minimum of six months, during which time you should aim to facilitate two Conversations each month.

    We encourage facilitators to find their first host or two among their networks. After that, your hosts will come from the Conversations you facilitate.

    To find out more, head to our Facilitator FAQ page.

    By signing up below, you are expressing your interest in becoming a Climate for Change volunteer facilitator. Your details will be sent to a team leader, who will contact you with information on upcoming training sessions and to see if you have any questions. You’ll also be taken to our training pages where you can sign up for training straight away.
