This target can only be achieved together and across industries, sectors and organisations, and MASG will be inviting ideas and input from the floor.

Panel members are:

'The film is a riveting wake-up on the vast and greedy forces overrunning Earth's ability to cope.Every Australian should see this film...'

- Bob Brown -

Set against the backdrop of an ever increasing thirst for fossil fuels by the extractive industry and the Australian government. Black Hole is an intensely riveting exposé of the ongoing battle to save the last of an endangered woodland forest from being cleared to make way for the most controversial largest open cut coal mine in production in Australia.
