LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY WOMEN BRISBANE - FIRESIDE CHAT

https_%2F%2Fcdn.evbuc.com%2Fimages%2F48327249%2F24829028031%2F1%2Foriginal.png

In this fireside conversation we'll chat to Clare Press about her career, her passions and her books.

We'll particularly focus on Clare's brand new book, Rise & Resist.

Rise & Resist takes a wild trip through the new activism sweeping the world. The political march is back in a big way, as communities rally to build movements for environmental and social justice. But today's context calls for increasingly creative strategies to make our voices heard. Crossing the globe, Clare Press meets passionate change-makers who believe in the power of the positive. From eco warriors and zero wasters to knitting nannas, introvert craftivists to intersectional feminists, they're all up for a revolution of sorts.

Join us to chat about the formation of a new counterculture, united by a grand purpose: to rethink how we live today to build a more sustainable tomorrow.


WHERE// Newstead Studios, 22 Ross Street Newstead

WHEN// Wednesday, 24th October

RISE & RESIST CANBERRA LAUNCH

WO_clothing-swap.jpg

The Rise & Resist Canberra launch is actually a clothes swap!

I will be In Conversation with Nina Gbor about activism, sustainable fashion - and of course - how to change the world.

Nina Gbor is the founder of Clothes Swap & Style. She is as passionate about social justice as she is about, practically, doing something to make change. 

Clothing swaps are a fantastic way to access new-to-you fashion without using any virgin resources. They can be a vehicle for conversation about over-consumption. And they're seriously good fun.

Tickets are $77, and include:

  • A signed copy of Rise & Resist (RRP $32.99)
  • Refreshments - good food and great wine will be served
  • Entry to the clothes swap

SYDNEY: CLIMATE CHANGEMAKERS AT

On September 2015 at an historic UN Summit, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development were agreed by 193 members of the UN General Assembly officially came into force. The new Goals are unique in that they call for action by all countries, poor, rich and middle-income to promote prosperity while protecting the planet.

Despite our wealth of natural and economic resources, Australia’s overall response to climate change is appalling.  The Climate Change PerformanceIndex has ranked us 57 out of 60 countries, and rated China’s climate efforts as higher than Australia’s.

Thankfully, large-scale corporate initiatives, standout sustainability ambassadors, and a groundswell of grass roots activists are embracing transformation andtaking up the cause.
