About this Event

What is “The Week” about?

A 3-session experience to help wrap your head around the complex problems of climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution. Make sense of how it might affect you and those you love. And to help you figure out how you want to respond to it.

IMPORTANT: All 3 sessions of this event will be held in person on Waiheke Island. Sessions will be on Tuesday, Thursday from 6.30-8.30pm and Sunday 5.30 – 7.30pm and you are expected to attend all 3 when you register.

3 episodes & conversations You get together 3 times, during a week (hence “The Week”). Every time you watch a 1 hour documentary film episode. And then the heart of the experience:  a guided conversation for 30 minutes (or more if you want) to make sense of it all.

A ”U”-shaped journey Be prepared for a ride! It’s shaped like a “U”. Episode 1 is the hard one where we go down the “U” and look straight at what’s coming, without blinking. In episode 2, we make sense of it all.  And episode 3 gets us up the “U”, it’s empowering and inspiring.

No polar bears We won’t be talking about polar bears or ice sheets melting. The Week is about what is likely to happen to us and the people we love, in the next 10, 20 or 30 years. The videos look at parts of North America and Europe. In our discussions we’ll look at NZ and what we can realistically do about it.

A group experience Don’t do “The Week” alone. It’s an experience you do with friends, family or a group of colleagues. Because it’s helpful to engage with a topic as big as the climate crisis with a small group of people you know, or get to know, and not be on your own.

Please note, we are running “The Week” online in the first three weeks of the EcoFest as well! You can find this as a separate event in Humanitix: “The Week” – Online via Zoom

Please register for the event in which you can attend all three sessions. This makes for a more connected experience for you and for the other participants.
