The Melbourne Social Forum (MSF) is a progressive grassroots organisation that provides open space to discuss, share, and act on ideas for sustainable social and ecological justice. Our goal is to help create socially just and ecologically sustainable world through collaboration with community groups, activists, and the wider community. This year’s event explores ‘Positive responses to climate change‘.

Under this umbrella, vital contemporary themes consisting of human rights, sustainability and social and environmental justice will be discussed. The current social, ecological and economic challenges facing the world highlight the urgency for us to look for alternatives and solutions.

When: Friday 17 April
Where: TBA

The MSF launch will be followed by a two-day weekend festival at CERES Environmental Park in Brunswick featuring workshops, stalls, live music, performances by two local schools, films and art displays (Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th April).
