Please join us for our September volunteer movie night!!
After the overwhelming success of our July 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 September!
This month we are excited to be screening 'Living the Change'!
Sometimes it can feel like the environmental, economic and social issues the world is currently facing are too big, too overwhelming, to be dealt with by individuals. Climate change, resource limits, economic downturn, social disconnection. Surely these issues can only be properly managed by our governments?
'Living the Change' explores solutions to the global crises we face today – solutions any one of us can be part of – through the inspiring stories of people pioneering change in their own lives and in their communities in order to live in a sustainable and regenerative way.
From forest gardens to composting toilets, community supported agriculture to timebanking, 'Living the Change' offers ways we can rethink our approach to how we live.
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!
This event is open to all volunteers - existing and new! Come along and connect with others who share your interest in climate change and learn about volunteer opportunities coming up at Climate for Change.

- 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 'Living the Change'

“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.)

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