Description

We started our journey with a camera and an idea. We met Anika and her story gripped our mind, did not leave us and we felt her story needed to be told. To be shared with the world. In October 2020, Dr Anika Molesworth farewelled the last of the sheep from her station near Broken Hill, a victim of successive droughts made more frequent and severe as a result of climate change. Yet, Anika has not let this hardship hold her back. She remains committed to raising awareness of the need for action on climate change, through her work as an author and educator, and guiding force on climate-focused organisations, including Farmers for Climate Action.

We believe that Anika’s story, and the stories of other brave and inspiring farmers like her, can be the catalyst for change in our current climate change trajectory. By using our skills as experienced film makers, we can bring to life the very real impacts of climate change already being felt by those on the land and the solutions we already have at our fingertips.

By showcasing five Australian farmers, across different industries and locations, each in their own 30-minute documentary we want to provide a positive alternative to the status quo, which is currently driving us towards catastrophic climate change, and empower people across the world with simple, tangible and constructive ideas to make tomorrow better.

Their story is our story. Their solution is our solution. Their tomorrow is our tomorrow.

Donations
ThePositiveAlternative.org is a non-profit initiative to raise awareness about climate change and provide sustainable and positive ideas for a better tomorrow. Money will be used to produce the documentaries and share them.
