Our vision is to be a significantly sustainable event and embed a deep respect for nature in the place-based systems change movement in Australia.
We acknowledge that traditional owners and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have an intrinsic connection with the natural world that is deeply embedded in their cultures. We understand that we have responsibilities as custodians of the land on which we live, work, travel across and in those places where our events are held. We recognise the need for guidance to honour these responsibilities.
One of the most significant contributions to carbon emmissions for the ChangeFest event is travel. We ask that you consider the environmental impact of your journey to ChangeFest.
We are proud to recommend Fifteen Trees as an offset option, should you want to reduce your carbon footprint. www.15trees.com.au

We try to remember how vast and diverse our precious country is and the great distances people travel to meet each other and gather together. It isn’t always easy to travel by public transport and flying usually seems the quickest and easiest option. We are challenging ourselves to see time and space as values that we can honour when we think about making these big journeys.
