With Renew Fest about to run a crowdfunding early bird ticket blitz to ensure this year’s festival can go ahead, they are thrilled to announce a new key partnership with Resilient Byron, which was recently founded by Dr Jean S Renouf to assist in preparing communities and neighbourhoods for a changing climate.
As the recent fire events have shown, it is crucial that communities come together to co-ordinate and support everyone to be safe, to be regenerative, and to be innovative and agile in meeting all the challenges ahead of us. Building collective strength and resourcefulness is a shared agenda of Renew Fest and Resilient Byron.
Director of Renew Fest, Ella Rose Goninan said, ‘It excites me to think of all the ways Renew Fest and Resilient Byron can help bring community groups and individuals together and especially if Renew Fest 2020 is supported to go ahead this year.’
Jean added, ‘This partnership will help everyone transform our Shire into a place where we thrive and are well prepared for future disasters. Renew Fest is a fantastic opportunity for our community to share ideas about how we’re going to organise system-wide change. Let’s make this year’s edition a turning point in our Shire’.
Renew Fest is running a one-week-only, all-or-nothing crowdfunding early bird ticket blitz from February 10 till 17 to enable its 2020 event to go ahead in May. For more info see www.renewfest.org.au or email [email protected]
