Climate Change Panel Discussion

This event has passed!

Venue – Art Gallery of WA Theatrette

How do we save the world?

Hear what the next generation of decision makers have to say about climate change.

Join a discussion facilitated by sixteen-year old climate activist Makaela Rowe-Fox, who is one of the organisers for the school strike for climate action in Perth.

Makaela Rowe-Fox
Facilitator: Youth Climate Change Panel

Makaela is sixteen years old and is one of the organisers for the school strike for climate movement in Perth. She decided to join the movement because she believes we need to take action on the climate crisis and can't leave it to governments and corporations. As an organiser she has been involved in national calls, outreach to groups, unions and schools, managing social media, and has spoken/chanted/occupied at the major March 15 and May 3 strikes earlier this year. Makaela is also a performer with Co3 dance and Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company.

The Botanical: Beauty and Peril | FREE

This major exhibition explores the abundant beauty of the botanical world and the threats that assail it. The Botanical: Beauty and Peril draws from the renowned Janet Holmes à Court Collection and the AGWA Collection to present a vivid, involving and sometimes disturbing journey through the diverse representation by Australian artists of the glorious kingdom of plants. From wildflower rooms to bush fire photography, the show both celebrates the natural beauty of landscapes and plants, and raises bracing issues about environmental destruction and the land rights of Australia’s First Peoples.
