The inside story of Australia's environment movement.
PO Box 2009
WILD THINGS follows a group of inspirational environmentalists who are mobilising against forces more powerful than themselves and saying, enough. They are ordinary Australians – quiet, loud, solo, collective, unlikely – who are striving to change our world. Many are Gen Z, armed only with mobile phones and the ability to generate mass action with one finger tap. It’s a far cry from the heady days of the Franklin River Blockade and the anti-uranium mining movement when street marches were the only way to be heard. Against a back drop of unprecedented heatwaves, bushfires and storms battering the nation; we witness how today’s eco-warriors are standing up against the controversial Adani Coal Mine, fracking and logging; and explore connections with the past through untold stories of previous campaigns. Surprisingly the methods of old still have currency when a groundswell of school kids says, ‘change is coming’ and call a national strike demanding action against global warming.
