Dumbo Feather are co-hosting an event with the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute (MSSI) as part of its Climate Conversations series—discussing reflections from leaders at the forefront of the Australian climate advocacy movement. What makes them hopeful in the time of Trump? What have we learnt? Where to next?
The panelists will draw on their rich experience across a range of organisations in Australia’s climate activist movement that have been working to mobilise communities; shape the response to, and action on, climate change by both government and business; and shift the broader social and cultural conversation around climate change in Australia.
They will share their perspectives on the challenges and successes of recent initiatives, the lessons that they’ve taken from these experiences, and their view on what these mean for the future direction and priorities for climate activism in Australia.
Facilitated by Anna Rose—co-editor of our next issue—the panel will include:
Victoria McKenzie McHarg—President, Climate Action Network Australia
Kirsty Albion—National Director, Australian Youth Climate Coalition
Katerina Gaita —Founding Director, Climate for Change
