To support community conversations about how best to respond to the impacts of climate change and adaptation opportunities DELWP is offering financial support to communities by covering the film licencing costs for screening the 2040 film, to enable communities to attend free screenings of the film 2040.
On Wednesday 11 December a free DELWP funded screening of the film 2040 was held at BPACC, brought to the community of Benalla by BSFG, Renewable Energy Benalla and Benalla Rural City as part of the Hume Region's climate change adaptation planning. It was a promising injection into community conversations both during the Q&A sessions and with follow up conversations in the community as people who attended greeted each other saying 'I saw you at the 2040 screening on Wednesday night. What did you think?'
DELWP's 2040 initiative is being rolled out across the Hume Region in coming months.
