As Australia’s most ambitious climate-focused cultural project, 100 Climate Conversations inspires action by presenting an evidence-based and empowering vision of the future. The program showcases 100 visionary Australians taking effective action to respond to the most critical issue of our time, climate change. From regional farmers sequestering soil carbon, Traditional Owners managing Country through cultural burning, architects building carbon neutral homes, to entrepreneurs leading the world’s most ambitious renewable energy projects - each offers an inspired narrative of invention, community and resilience.

The conversations, hosted by the nation’s most respected journalists, is being recorded live at the Powerhouse. Video and transcripts are uploaded to our website and a podcast, produced in partnership with Spotify, is released weekly. Upon completion records of the 100 conversations will be archived for future generations as part of the museum’s collection.

Exploitation of the environment, farmers and food workers has placed our global food systems under pressure. Food activist and researcher Alana Mann advocates for the dismantling of colonial approaches to food production to strengthen food sovereignty under climate change.
