Event:
Earth Show 2019, organised by Friends of the Earth, was a spectacular celebration and tribute to the amazing Earth that we all share. Taking place in the stunning, glass-walled Deakin Edge at Federation Square, overlooking the Alexandra Gardens, it was a feast for both the eyes and ears.

The event began with an Environment Symposium, included in the ticket price. We heard from leaders in their field discuss climate change and the extent of the endangered flora and fauna crisis. It also offered advice, and hope, for how we can help at an individual level.

The recent Victorian Government native logging bans were discussed, as well as plans for three new native forests to be declared.

A brief Q'n'A session concluded the symposium and provided an opportunity for passionate individuals to ask individual questions of the impressive and knowledgeable panel. It provided much food for thought, to everyone attending the event.

The highlight of the event was The Earth Show concert, which was absolutely spectacular. It was an opportunity for those attending to be thoroughly entertained, while keeping our precious Earth, and its current predicament, at the forefront of our minds and hearts.

Sublime guitar, piano and drums interpreted classics such as Classical Gas and hits from the likes of Pink Floyd, Vivaldi and Carlos Santana. This was all set against the backdrop of powerfully emotive screen projections such as Steve Parish nature photography, Extinction Rebellion recent protest footage and NASA Satellite imagery, taking the audience on the most inspiring, empowering, and, at times, saddening, journey across the beautiful planet Earth. A touching tribute to climate, and animal, activist, Paul Martin was a special moment in the evenings performance.

I certainly cannot wait for Star Show 2020 next year!
