    “Building on TippingPoint Australia’s expertise in creating gatherings for artists, scientists and others to respond to the issue of climate change, Game on! proposes a new approach to navigating the high roads and the dead ends that abound as the impacts of climate change become more visible. We know what the problem is, how hairy it is, and how depressing it is and we know how we got here.  Now let’s do something about it.

    Game on!  is part forum, part game, part collaborative action planning, a chance to develop your ideas that are contributing  to the seismic cultural shift we’ll need for a future we want. Bring your projects, problems and prototypes and together we can find solutions, develop action plan, meet new collaborators and project partners. What are you working on that other people can jump in on? What do you have to offer (time, energy, skills,knowledge)?

    Dynamically facilitated by Matt Wicking and Angharad Wynne-Jones, with a master game maker – Harry Lee, and filled to the brim, (but not overstuffed) with artists, curators, scientists, futurists, gamers, activists, environmental professionals, technologists, designers, producers, pragmatists and optimists, Game On! is an opportunity to make up our minds to do something. Together.

    We would love you and your ideas and expertise to be in the room so we are keeping a place at the table for you. Please ensure your place by making a contribution of $20 before September 30th to cover the cost of delicious lunch which will be provided on the day.

  • Australia’s People Climate March [#geekgirl]

    “On September 21, tens of thousands of Australians will hit the streets of Melbourne, together with thousands more in cities and towns across Australia, as part of the world’s largest People’s Climate March. Our message is simple – Action, Not Words – it’s time for Australia to get out of the way of real climate action, to say no to new fossil fuel expansion and to protect and grow our renewable energy sector. But it doesn’t end here. When you join us on September 21, we’ll also ask you to pledge to help Action win over Words by committing to exercise your political, consumer and grassroots power in a number of exciting ways. Stay tuned for more updates but in the meantime RSVP for an event near you or register your own event.”
