Sustainable Living Festival exhibition from Michael Chew

Michael’s culmination of years of research will be shown in a moving photo exhibition from Wednesday 26th Feb to Sunday 1st of March at Monash University, Caufield.

Michael has been working with JCJ for many years on various projects and has also continuously offset with us. We have collaborated on various projects; such as the Climate Caravan in 2014. The ‘Climate Caravan’ travelled through Bangladesh, India and Nepal over 18 days to learn, share, participate, increase solidarity networks and strengthen local movements in the global struggle for food sovereignty, climate and gender justice.

We are very excited that Michael is completing his research and sharing some of what he has learnt and seen with us here in Melbourne.

JCJ is also very excited to be hosting the related Portraits of Change ‘Climate Action Competition’ that asks participants to explain an idea that has an effective impact on the environment and climate change under $100. Click here for the competition link and information.

Description of the exhibition:

The Portraits of Change Exhibition connects young people from Australia, Bangladesh and China through positive-themed photographic storytelling around climate change and environmental issues. Discover powerful and moving photo-stories and videos created by youth participants across the three countries who are taking inspiring local action in the face of environmental impacts. Contribute your own message in response, or a photo-story showing environmental action in your own life or community.
