National Sustainable Living Festival, the oncoming wave of Climate Emergency Declarations and Kate Auty on “starting where you are”
The annual National Sustainable Living Festival starts this week and runs from 4 Feb to 28 Feb – with the Big Weekend in Melbourne Friday-Sunday, 10-12 February.
In the first interview Vivien talks to Luke Taylor about the Festival program, the film The Age of Consequences, communicating the climate emergency to leave nobody behind and many things besides.
In the second interview Natalie speak with Philip Sutton from RSTI and Breakthrough on the 3 parts of the thinking behind the Climate Emergency Declaration, and how people can help it be taken on at every level to create a ripple wave across Australia – starting local, state and building up to federal.
We finish with a recording of Kate Auty speaking on her perspective on local level theory of change.
<< Many may know the National Sustainable Living Festival is on again. Come along, you can hear from folks like Alan Pears, Richard Keech or myself during this month-long series of events. Cheers, Tim Forcey >>
The 2016 Sydney Peace Foundation Prize was presented to Naomi Klein at Sydney Town Hall on Friday 11 November. This inspiring lecture and award ceremony featured an opening song by Missy Higgins, an introduction by Senator Patrick Dodson and the awarding of the Prize by Professor Gillian Triggs.
“The Jury commended Klein for proposing solutions that not only reduce emissions and end fossil fuel extraction, but also aim for social justice, economic fairness.”

In conversation with Per Espen Stoknes, Lyn Bender, Susie Burke, and with Vivien Langford.
“The more facts that pile up about global warming, the greater the resistance to them grows, making it harder to enact measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prepare communities for the inevitable change ahead.”
“It is a catch-22 that starts, says psychologist and economist Per Espen Stoknes, from an inadequate understanding of the way most humans think, act, and live in the world around them. With dozens of examples—from the private sector to government agencies—Stoknes shows how to retell the story of climate change and, at the same time, create positive, meaningful actions that can be supported even by deniers.”

In this interview (courtesy of The Elephant Podcast and Kevin Kaners), Guardian columnist George Monbiot argues that the climate crisis isn’t just an isolated problem, but one that’s intimately tied to other systemic issues in our societies – from the run-away political power of corporations which are undermining our democracies, to the rampant consumerism culture that dominates the West.
