Set on New Year’s Eve of December 2029, a news anchor is ending the nightly bulletin with a look back at the decade ‘that could be’. A decade that saw Australia transition to a fairer, cleaner, more community focused economy. The film is a construction of news reports and press conferences featuring real journalists, politicians, business leaders and citizens.

Produced in partnership with WWF-Australia, Regenerating Australia is based on a four-month ‘listening campaign’ with a diverse group of Australians who shared their hopes and dreams for the country’s future. It features Kerry O’Brien, Gorgi Coghlan, Sandra Sully, Tim Flannery, Larissa Behrendt, and other well-known Australians.

It is a new story for our nation: a story of empowerment.

A story of solutions. A story of regeneration.

A lively panel of practitioners will discuss the film and Australia’s climate future including locals and the UN Chair of Plantary Health Professor Tony Capon. The discussion will be moderated by Lis Bastian, Program Lead, Planetary Health Initiative, Blue Mountains City Council

Doors open 7pm for a 7:30pm start
