10 Jan (Sat): Free screening of "The 11th Hour"

At the Botanic Gardens this Saturday
Humankind's 11th hour is here: the last moment when we can change course and stop our rush toward global ecological collapse. Actor Leonardo DiCaprio produces and narrates this urgent and transformational look at where we've been, where we're going and - most important - how we can change.

Thinkers from Mikhail Gorbachev to Stephen Hawking to sustainable-design expert William McDonough and dozens more reveal the current, critical state of life on planet earth. Astonishing images of floods, fires, hurricanes, collapsing ice cliffs and growing mountains of waste juxtaposed with images of a sustainable future urge us to take action. Will we employ exciting new technologies and change our behavior to save our planets? The crisis is now; but we do have the solutions to save this unique blue planet for future generations.

It's our generation that gets to change the world... forever!

Admission is free, on a first-come-first-served basis.

Time: 10.30am and 4pm
Venue: Function Hall, Botany Centre
