Educating girls and empowering women slows population growth and leads to less pressure on resources.Support girls education Learn more about this solution
The evidence is clear that empowering women and girls with education, access to reproductive health services and work opportunities can give them a better quality of life and have an enormous impact on the planet.
Educating a girl not only has the potential to change her life - it also changes communities and impacts future generations. Educated girls become empowered women who can make choices about family planning. The UN predicts that if 98 million more girls were able to complete their education, it would mean 1.1 billion fewer people on the planet.

What if we could reduce CO2 in the atmosphere, restore health to the planet and secure our future food supply all that the same time? Well, we can!join Carbon 8 Learn more about this solution
What if we could reduce CO2 in the atmosphere, restore health to the planet and secure our future food supply all that the same time? Well, we can! Regenerative agriculture is a system of farming and grazing practices that can reverse climate change by building healthy, biologically-diverse and mineral-rich soils, all the while sequestering carbon from the atmosphere. Global soils contain 2 to 3 times more carbon than the atmosphere. Project Drawdown, has estimated that regenerative agricultural could remove an astonishing 23.15 gigatons of CO2 from our atmosphere by 2050! All the while making our soils healthier and our food more nutritious. It’s a win-win for people and the planet!
We are thrilled to help launch the Carbon8 Fund which supports farmers transition to regenerative practices by paying them to put carbon back into the soil. This will help us reverse global warming by drawing down carbon from the atmosphere, supporting farming in the transition, healing our soils by pumping it with carbon and improving its natural capacity to retain water, and ultimately benefiting our food systems by making our food more nutritionally rich.
"One person, through a donation of $8 a month, can sequester over 1000 tonnes of CO2 per year and offset 80 people who aren't helping yet.” - Mike McCosker
Sign up to Carbon 8 today to help farmers put carbon back into our soil.

Damon had the opportunity to visit Brian and the University of Tasmania project team in December last year and it was such a thrill to see baby kelp bred in the lab now growing on test lines at the field site.Learn more about this solution
Marine permaculture is a regenerative solution that sequesters carbon and restores balance to our oceans. We teamed up with the Intrepid Foundation, the University of Tasmania and the Climate Foundation to launch Australia's first seaweed platform in Storm Bay near Hobart.

Uplifting, charming and inspiring.
— Lead Negotiator of the Paris Climate Agreement
A most compelling blend of futuristic vision and current reality. Let yourself be inspired.
It’s the kind of film that you feel could make a startling difference if the people in power who could implement change get to see it. Even if they don’t, there’s plenty to be learned at a grassroots level.
— The Sydney Morning Herald
Engaging, persuasive and urgent, it’s an exercise in what you might call muscular hope.
We have partnered with the curriculum experts at Cool Australia to build a comprehensive package of units of work for upper primary and secondary. These free lesson plans are learning recipes for teachers that utilise short clips from the film to support classroom learning, providing step-by-step instructions, student workshops and engaging content.
"We interviewed over 100 children from around the world for 2040 and asked them what their hopes and dreams were for the future. It is a world they will be inheriting from us so we have to show them that solutions exist, that there are people who care deeply about their future, and that wonderful careers await with genuine purpose and meaning."
