It’s good to be back in Dunedin. This little city has seriously good vibes, and so much energy. Not to mention good surf, an epic farmers market, and a delicious organic eatery just around the corner from our office – good living!
Now back from a pretty chilled week off (yeeaaaah!), Laura & I have been cranking in the office. We’ve mapped out the time until the big festival (12-weeks), and all the little tasks (164+) that need ticked off to put on an amazing festival. We’ve also upgraded the website – huge thanks to Jamie from Enspiral for your help – Inspiring Stories 2.0!
Laura & I have just made the call to move to Wellington for the next 10-weeks. We’re really excited about being there – being on the ground to muster up as much goodness as possible. Right now we’re designing the programme, looking for key collaborators, and working on the Festival website – hoping to go live next week (www.festivalforthefuture.org.nz)!
In other exciting news, we’ve just had a very cool rough cut of a short film sent in by Johanna from Murchison (South Island) – serious talent indeed. Nice work Johanna!
If you’ve been out-an-about in the main centers lately you may have noticed an exciting new youth-led movement arising in New Zealand. They’re a crew of passionate young Kiwis spread across the country united by a single goal – to bring New Zealand’s carbon-emissions down to zero within a generation. Now that’s ambitious. I like it. Meet some of the core crew behind Generation Zero!
