Event description

Description

In the wake of the IPCC’s new report demanding drastic action to halt global warming to 1.5°C, all Australians must step up and fight against fossil fuel influence in our parliament and for a safer, cleaner, greener future.

To explain how ordinary people can take action, author and environmental activist, 350.org co-founder Bill McKibben leads the Accelerate film – with additional voices provided by Mia Wasikowska, Rachel Ward, Jack Thompson, Sean Keenan, and Simon Baker.

When Bill McKibben visited Australia in 2018 for the Accelerate Climate Action tour, we filmed him at the world’s biggest coal port at Newcastle, diving at a seriously degraded Great Barrier Reef, at town halls and business lunches around Australia as he explained the gravity of the climate change situation – and what we can do about it.

The Accelerate movie shows how, when working together, ordinary people can fight for no new fossil fuel projects, push for a fast and fair transition to 100% renewable energy, and ensure not a dollar more goes to dirty energy.

Join the director, producers and 350 Australia community for the Australian premiere of this important call to arms for climate action. Celebratory canapés will be provided after the screening.
