Sunshine Coast Climate Action Now joined the Sunshine Coast Environment Council (SCEC) as part of an online World Environment Day festival this year, rather than the traditional community event at Cotton Tree park, due to restrictions associated with the Covid-19 pandemic.
The festival streamed live on 5th-7th June 2020, with the Renewables Expo featuring on the Sunday afternoon. The viewing audience on Sunday was almost 11,800 via Facebook, YouTube and the live stream platform, and reached way beyond the attendees drawn predominantly from the local community at past WED festivals.
The Renewables Expo was supported by a grant from the Sunshine Coast Council, which included preparing a post event video, which can be viewed below:

WE RECOMMEND VIEWING THE FOLLOWING TED TALKS FOR INSPIRATION:
The case for optimism...
Why is Al Gore optimistic about climate change? In this spirited talk, Gore asks three powerful questions about the man-made forces threatening to destroy our planet — and the solutions we're designing to combat them. (Featuring Q&A with TED Curator Chris Anderson – Feb 2016)
Paris Climate Agreement...
What would you do if your job was to save the planet? When Christiana Figueres was tapped by the UN to lead the Paris climate conference (COP 21) in December 2015, she reacted the way many people would: she thought it would be impossible to bring the leaders of 195 countries into agreement on how to slow climate change. Find out how she turned her skepticism into optimism — and helped the world achieve the most important climate agreement in history.
