Federation Square's leadership in environmental sustainability has allowed it to become a carbon neutral precinct. As part of this continued commitment to our environment and as a precursor to next month's United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21) in Paris, they are hosting a free screening of the climate change film based on author Naomi Klein's hard hitting international best seller 'This Changes Everything'.


In addition, two others will also be screened. 'To See with Both Eyes' (Nhawul Bultjubul Ma) covers the indigenous perspective of climate change and was filmed at the Yorta Yorta Climate Change Adaptation Workshop in Yorta Yorta Country, Echuca.

'Counting One to Four - Nature Morte' by Dr. Debbie Symons visualises the predicted consequences of global warming on the Earth's biodiversity in a 7 minute HD looping video. A relatively new style of practice where artists confront and visualise empirical data in artistic form, it highlights the reality of the end of thousands of species and their environment within our lifetime and more.


In between screenings there'll be guest speakers.

Councillor Cathy Oke - Councillor for the City of Melbourne and a Greens representative will be discussing her upcoming trip to Paris for COP21 and her work with the regional and global committees of local governments for sustainability.
Sharon Pollard - General Manager Operations for Federation Square will talk about Federation Square's commitment to our environmental stability and how it's leading the way.
Vanessa Kwiatkowski Beekeeper from Melbourne City Rooftop Honey will be talking about urban beekeeping, and what role Rooftop Honey plays at Fed Square. She continues with information about the importance of bees and the impacts of climate change on them.

Your Comment
Wish I could be there, it would be so intresting. I wasn't aware Fed Square was carbon neutral. As a Melburnian I fell quite proud about that.
