WHERE WILL THE ANNUAL EVENT BE AND WHAT IS THE ANNUAL EVENT?

Our Inaugural event will be a one-week Film Festival event in Sydney at the iconic Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney at the Domain. We will preview approximately 50 films over the course of the week, 75% of which will be World or Australian Premieres.

LEAD UP EVENTS

Wild Earth Oceania are delighted to be hosting six boutique events in the lead up to our Finale in Sydney. These events commence in Adelaide, the epicentre of the cultural and musical history of this iconic state in a Covid-friendly environment.

WEO TALKS

Our Inaugural event in Sydney will include a one-day TEDx Convention in our own signature style. We will bring the most brilliant minds together in one place to bring forth a meaningful outcome ie a fighting fund for biodiversity preservation and climate action.

EDUCATION

We use a round-square pedagogy which means all of our education is immersive and interactive. We take young people and their teachers out of the classroom to where the wildlife actually is and engage them as global citizens and custodians of this planet in programs that involve hands and/or experiential learning. These experiences include a unique Duke of Edinburgh’s Award accredited program as well as teacher workshops and kids-teaching-kids opportunities.

We involve tertiary institutions in on-ground restoration activities and take a specific approach in planting endemic species to maximize ecological recovery, with targeted projects across SE Australia following the apocalyptic Black Summer bush fires. We also engage local nurseries and communities to promote regional economic recovery.

Wild Earth Oceania has a social justice focus that supports disadvantaged children. We teach children about the land and wildlife around them through inclusive storytelling workshops, as well as events led by Indigenous elders, that facilitate a range of learning styles and functional needs.

We actively look for ways to be collaborative and use a model that is replicable and scalable so that all children in the Australia-Pacific region can be engaged in learning about local wildlife and restoring wildlife habitats now and into the future.

Our goal is to run this innovative Education program across 500 – 750 schools within Oceania by 2023. This accounts for 25-30% of schools within Australia.

WE are facilitators. Wild Earth Oceania take a triangular approach between empowering youth and making films available to schools, mobilising and unifying Government and NGO organisations, and working directly with policy decision makers and Government leaders.

WEO are in the process of establishing media labs across Oceania where youth are taken in and mentored in specific Wildlife fields in film through on-ground conservation efforts.
