In mid 2020, after the success of the 3-part ABC TV series called Fight for Planet A, ZEB Stories began as a competition called Fight for Planet A and Win! If you missed the TV Series we urge you to watch it! You can still catch up at ABC iview.
10 winners shared in a fantastic prize pool that included generous donations from the following businesses and people:
Santos Organics, Spell & the Gypsie, Subpod, Beyond Byron E-bikes, Mullum Cares, Renew & Sanctuary Magazines, Simply Ethical Advice, Vision Eco Tours, Popcar Car Share, Archimages Architecture, the Macadamia Castle, the Byron Shire Council, Byron Trails, Katrina Shields & Christobel & Christopher Munson (books!)
We recognised that sharing stories was fundamental to accelerating action in our region so we redirected our efforts from running a photo based competition to crafting stories for video production and seeking funding to bring our local stories to life on screen.
Please email us your story and send through any images or footage you have that we can consider adding to this ZEB Stories page and our Comms Team will add it to our pool of stories to draw from to turn into compelling film publications.
We recognised that sharing stories is fundamental to accelerating action in our region so we redirected our efforts from running a photo based competition to working to tell these stories on film. Our first two ZEB Stories are in production right now!
There's no point being shy about it though, what's holding us back are funds. Funds to pay highly skilled locals to craft, film, edit and publish the Stories of Locals Living a Low Carbon Life. If it's within your sphere of influence please donate today.
We are also keen to keep collecting stories and adding them to this webpage to inspire others to act. If you would like to share what you and your family, household, school or workplace please email us and send through any images or footage you have that help tell the story.
Please share your story with us via email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by joining and posting in our Facebook group: ZEB Stories
