A free screening of short film Regenerating Australia followed by presentations from Wellington environmental leaders. Attendees will have the opportunity to check out the new Nakunbalook Environmental and Cultural Education Centre ahead of the community open day on Saturday 20 August. Regenerating Australia is a 17-minute short film set on New Year's Eve of December 2029, as a news anchor ends the nightly bulletin with a look back at the decade 'that could be’ - “a decade that saw Australia transition to a fairer, cleaner, more community focused economy”.

Following the screening, Wellington Shire Council Open Space Planner Liam Cole will give attendees a presentation on the Greening Wellington project. Gippsland Climate Change Network CEO Darren McCubbin will discuss the role the network and community power hubs could play in Gippsland’s future and Loulou Gebbie, the Natural Capital Manager for EcoGipps who undertakes private land conservation work to restore and connect landscapes, allowing the free movement of plants and animals locally.
