Film & Petition: takayna

"The fight for an ancient rainforest and the future of our last wild places"

Patagonia Films latest project is on takayna / Tarkine in northwestern Tasmania, home to one of the last undisturbed tracts of Gondwanan rainforest in the world, and one of the highest concentrations of Aboriginal archaeology in the Southern Hemisphere. Yet this place, which remains largely as it was when dinosaurs roamed the planet, is currently at the mercy of destructive extraction industries, including logging and mining. Weaving together the conflicting narratives of activists, locals and Aboriginal communities, and told through the experiences of a trail running doctor and a relentless environmentalist, this documentary unpacks the complexities of modern conservation and challenges us to consider the importance of our last truly wild places.

Please go check it out and sign the petition to tell the Tasmanian government to nominate takayna / Tarkine for World Heritage protection.

Project & Book: 1°C Rising

Over the past 8 years, photographer and environmental activist Luka Tomac has visited over 20 countries and collected more than 25 stories of people on the front lines of climate change. His project '1°C Rising' documents stories from around the world and looks to elevate the voices of local communities fighting for climate justice – through beautiful photography, interviews, essays and quotes.

The project is currently looking for funding to turn it into a book that will be used as campaigning tool and to build upon the climate justice movement. Go check it out here and pre-order yourself a copy. (but don't dawdle because there's only a few days left on the Indiegogo campaign).

Festival: Campfire Stories

Set in the beautiful Dutch nature and with talks and workshops from doers, thinkers, changemakers, pioneers, creatives, and outdoor adventurers, Campfire Stories is certainly the micro-festival for those looking to be inspired.

The organisers invite you to come with the expectation to hear and do things that you wouldn’t usually do in your daily life, meet new people around the campfire, gaze at the stars, experience the beautiful surrounds, and go home feeling restored and inspired.Meals are included in ticket price and talks will be in English.

This year you'll find Another Escape founders Rachel Taylor and Jody Daunton there talking about fostering a meaningful relationship with nature. So grab a ticket and we'll see you around the campfire.

Book: Do Inhabit

We are big fans of Do Book Co. They explore such interesting topics. Are such nice reads. Are easy to pop in a bag and whip out wherever. And you always learn something new.

The theme for their new book is "styling your space for a creative and considered life", and it's definitely one for the nesters amongst us. The book ventures on a journey uncovering meaningful ways to create and design spaces that inspire us and how these same principles may be applied to other areas of our lives. Unsurprisingly, our favourite chapter is "Nature", in which authors Danielle Quigley and Sue Fan write:

Bringing the outside in is at the core of our design style. Not simply because it's beautiful, but because it keeps us grounded and connected to the Earth. Surrounding ourselves and designing with beauty from outdoors makes us happier, healthier and calmer.
