Regenerate 2030 with Damon Gameau

Imagine 2030. Is it a future that we can be proud of? Have we made the world a better place to live? What did we do as a community to make a difference? What changes would we see and how would we feel? This discussion with internationally renowned director, writer, producer and presenter Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film, 2040, and Regenerating Australia) will explore how together we can unlock creative solutions to our current crisis from the ground up and turn ideas into reality.

Using film as a medium to amplify the message, Gameau’s innovative feature documentary 2040 took a deep into what the future would look like if we embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet. Regenerating Australia is his most recent project – a film and accompanying impact campaign that includes a significant financial fund to develop and scale community solutions seeking to accelerate the transition to a regenerative future.

Gameau was recently nominated for NSW Australian of the Year for his work in ‘the Regeneration’ movement. His ‘2040’ documentary included an extensive impact campaign that has seen 1.5 million students be taught the curriculum materials, hundreds of farmers receive assistance to switch to regenerative practices plus the building of the first seaweed platform in Tasmania.

Who is this for? For anyone interested in positive change this talk is a must see at this years Wao Summit.
