    WCJC | Feminist Climate Justice Poetry Night

    WCJC | Feminist Climate Justice Poetry Night

    The Women's Climate Justice Collective and One Woman Project warmly welcome you to come along to our poetry night celebrating intersectional feminism and climate justice.

    WCJC is a national collective aiming to mainstream intersectional feminist climate justice.

    WCJC strives to be feminist, intersectional, inclusive, diverse, child-friendly, and safe. Our mission is to: 1) mainstream intersectional feminist climate justice;

    2) support women and nb folks in the feminist and climate justice movements;

    and 3) demand that intersectional feminism is incorporated into the climate justice movement, and climate justice is incorporated into the feminist movement.

    We aim to bring more feminists and feminist perspectives into the climate movement to build capacity and consciousness. We also aim to illuminate in feminist spaces and groups, how the climate crisis especially affects women, and the need for gender-just climate solutions. Our main objectives are to grow as a collective, and develop resources, workshops and events to increase understanding of intersectional feminist climate justice.

    Climactic Features | The Magnitude of All Things

    Climactic Features | The Magnitude of All Things

    The Magnitude of All Things is a cinematic exploration of the emotional and psychological dimensions of climatechange.


    When Jennifer Abbott lost her sister to cancer, her sorrow opened her up to the profound gravity of climate breakdown, drawing intimate parallels between the experiences of grief—both personal and planetary. Stories from the frontlines of climate change merge with recollections from the filmmaker’s childhood on Ontario’s Georgian Bay. What do these stories have in common? The answer, surprisingly, is everything.

    This is a conversation about making beautiful, compelling climate-engaged media with Sundance award-winning documentary maker Jennifer Abbott, and composer Rob Law.

    Climactic Features | Investigating "Inconceivable" with director Jayde Harding

    Climactic Features | Investigating "Inconceivable" with director Jayde Harding

    Special guest host Amruta Nargundkar from Heckin' Concerned (www.heckinconcerned.com). 

    Inconceivable is a film that recently ran on ABC Compass. Amruta and I speak to the director Jayde Harding about the making of and response to the film, her engagement with the climate crisis, and the broader topic of 'birthstrike'.

    In the age of the global climate crisis many young Australians are struggling with the part of them that has always wanted and imagined having kids and the part of them that is terrified for the kind of future those children might have. Inconceivable explores these anxieties and how they are playing out in the lives of 5 Australians at different stages of building a family.

    Many of the subjects of this documentary have previously appeared on Climactic, and you can fine those appearances below.

    Part 2 | Violence in Environmental Activism - Learning from mistakes

    Part 2 | Violence in Environmental Activism - Learning from mistakes

    This special 2-part miniseries is from a panel held as part of ARTS1241, Environmental Advocacy and Activism, from the University of New South Wales.

    Mark Rudd is a political organizer and an anti-war activist. He first burst onto the political landscape in the United States as a member, and ultimately the leader of the Columbia University chapter of Students for Democratic Society (known as SDS). SDS was the leading student anti-war social movement in the United States in the 1960s.

    Mark Rudd's expertise, namely the limits of violent, direct action, are particularly relevant to what's going on right now. For more on SDS, Mark's contemporary Tom Hayden and that time period, check out the film The Trial of the Chicago Seven on Netflix. 

    Join the students of 1241 for this discussion with Mark about the dangers of violence in activism, his theory of change, and what we can learn from successful social movements of the past. 

    To join us in adapting future events, and providing a platform for learning and collaboration across the climate community, get in touch with Climactic at hello@climactic.fm for any feedback, suggestions or questions.
