CONTINUING THIS YEAR

You can attend Dirrum Festival this year by registering for your spot to either come watch our speakers in-person or to view their talks live online.

We have decided to continue Dirrum Festival, despite the ongoing pandemic. We feel now, more than ever, stories need to be told and heard across the community so we can walk and learn together.

SPEAKERS

DIRRUM CHALLENGE

 

Dirrum Challenge is about searching for the sweet spot - where your interests, skills and heart meet a need within the community. It is a practice for serving the common good that might lead to lifelong habits.

 

It is comprised of people, from all ages and backgrounds, in the community using their passions to have an impact locally, and inspire a movement of change. The concept of Dirrum Challenge is best summarised by the idea of “Think Globally, Act Locally”.

ZOE MALONE'S DIRRUM CHALLENGE

 

For my Dirrum Challenge, I am picking up litter from around my neighbourhood with the goal of creating a two week challenge that people across Australia and the world can take part in, raising funds for the climate revolution through friends and family sponsors. By acting locally to clean up my neighbourhood, my goal is to magnify the efforts of participants by directly funding technologies and projects aimed at preventing or reversing climate change. Over the last few months I have picked up over 70kg of rubbish – and counting. You can check out my progress and stay updated on my challenge by following my Instagram: @theclimatechallenge.
