Environmentality 27 August 2014, Livia Cullen, Co-director of Environmental Film Festival Melbourne

Well today’s guest really highlights one the benefits of living in Melbourne, the events capital of Australia. Livia, co-director of Environmental Film Festival Melbourne (EFFM) spoke to us today about the upcoming event which showcases the best environmental films from Australia and abroad ranging from documentaries and short narratives to thought provoking expert panel discussions.

Even if this seems only mildly interesting, I’d recommend heading to the EFFM website and having a look through the program. There you can watch trailers of all the films showing and get a good idea of which ones really tickle your fancy. The EFFM runs from the 4-12 September at Kino Cimena, Collins Place.
Monday 8th Sept, 6:30pm

If you missed today’s show, or just have a short memory, download the podcast to find out which 3 films Livia has recommended as the ones not to miss.

Another feature of the show today was the introduction of the newest member to the Environmentality panel, Chris Murphy. Chris has just joined Banksia Gardens Community Centre as the Environmental Education Officer. Chris is an environmental engineer with several years’ experience and is looking forward to the opportunity to contribute to the show.

Environmentality 14 August 2014, Graz van Egmond, Banksia Foundation

A great show on Wednesday with Graz van Egmond, CEO of the Banksia Foundation.

Graz has been at the helm for many years and is passionate about recognising organisations that are driving change and leading innovation on an environment and sustainability level.  Make sure you listen to the show.

The Banksia Sustainability Award submissions close on 19 September and with 11 categories available I am sure there is a category for the most innovative environmentalist out there!

If  Banksia's awards are not enough to sustain you, you can always get along to the Sustainability in Business Conference and Exhibition running on 15 and 16 October.

I think we sometimes have the perception that to be environmentally friendly we have to live in a one room hut, eat mung beans and protest at the cutting of lawn!  A bit far fetched, yes.  However, recognition of large corporates that are spending some of their profit improving their business, streamlining processes and efficiencies is a great way to show they are not always the devil and that environmentalism comes in many
different guises.

The music this week was Jaime's selection and it was very low key
