BOB BROWN

Bob Brown Foundation

Bob Brown is a lifetime environmental campaigner who, through his work as an activist, a founder of the Wilderness Society, state MP for the Tasmanian Greens and Leader of the Australian Greens, has made countless contributions to progressing environmental causes. Bob now spends his time as Chairman of the Bob Brown Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting environmental activists in Australia and the Asia Pacific. 

The Environmental Film Festival of Australia is a feast of Earth’s delights, its ruination and action by an alarmed minority of environmentally –charged human beings. “Where is the fire in their bellies?” Judith Wright asked me of environmentalists in 1995. EFFA lights the fire in our bellies or, at least, our brains. Here is a must-go event for everyone who loves the living Earth and wants inspiration to join the campaign for its defence. Don’t miss it.
