    Film & Feast: Living the Change

    Thursday 25 October 2018, 7–10pm


    ABOUT THE FILM

    Living the Change is a new documentary that explores solutions to the global crises we face today – solutions any one of us can be part of – through the inspiring stories of people pioneering change in their own lives and in their communities in order to live in a sustainable and regenerative way.


    Each and every one of us has the power to create change. Living the Change sets out to inspire us to do just that. There are so many exciting and important ideas and initiatives out there, so much hope and inspiration. This film aims to generate discussion as widely and deeply as possible about how each of us views the future and our part in it.

    1. “Greening Seawalls” Stakeholder Workshop

    2. Sydney Institute of Marine Science

    3. Researchers from the Sydney Institute of Marine Science, Macquarie University and the University of New South Wales are working on the “Living Seawalls Project”. Artificial structures, like seawalls, typically support lower marine diversity than natural habitats such as the beautiful sandstone cliffs of the eastern suburbs. The Living Seawalls Project involves trialing new approaches to ‘greening’ seawalls such as attaching 3D structures to existing seawalls to provide more space and habitats for marine plants and animals. One of the goals of our project is to assess stakeholder opinions of proposed new methods and designs for ‘greening’ seawalls. We are hosting two 3-hour workshops to assess stakeholder opinions. During the workshops, we will explain some of our proposed new initiatives, and participants will have the opportunity to provide their opinion through group and individual activities, which involve brainstorming some of the benefits and risks of these and rating alternative approaches. We warmly invite you to attend one of these workshops and share your thoughts about the proposed research.

    5. Macquarie University City Campus Level 24/123 Pitt St Sydney NSW 200
