In September 2019, record numbers of people around the world took to the streets to demand action on climate change—from government officials to organisations and industries. What happens now? Join a group of community leaders from a range of backgrounds and specialties for a vital tag-team discussion about living in a time of climate crisis.

Our annual MRelay series brings together movers and shakers from around Victoria to discuss timely issues effecting us all. This special edition of MRelay is organised by the M_Curators.

Speaking will be artist Yandel Walten; architect and urban planner Charity Edwards; Jade Sarita Arnott, creative director and founder of Arnsdorf, Jane Morton, campaign leader at Extinction Rebellion; Karin Traeger Hermosilla, sustainability manager and founder of The Plastic Runner; emerging sustainable fashion designer Chelsea Hickman; youth activist Caspar Plum; Linden Ashcroft, climate scientist and lecturer at the University of Melbourne; Stuart Outhred, Senior Planner at RACV, and Dr N.A.J. Taylor, Research Fellow in the School of Ecosystem and Forest Sciences at The University of Melbourne.

This event was programmed by our M_Curators team. M_Curators is an MPavilion initiative engaging young makers, doers and planners.

This event is supported by MPavilion’s principal partner RACV.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
