Clean Futures Collective
Active since 2005, the Clean Futures Collective is one of South Australia’s primary campaign groups on mining, energy and nuclear issues. The collective is committed to creatively
- promoting sustainable, socially and ecologically conscious technologies
- supporting Indigenous communities adversely affected by the nuclear industry, particularly through uranium mining or nuclear waste dumping
- raising public awareness about mining and energy issues
- monitoring the activities of the nuclear industry
Passionate about justice and the health of SA’s fragile arid ecosystems, the collective coordinates Friends of the Earth’s legendary nuclear education tour: the Radioactive Exposure Tour and is a participant in the Australian Nuclear Free Alliance.
Reclaim the Food Chain
Reclaim the Food Chain draws together community members passionate about the politics and practicalities of contemporary food issues. Inspired by the concept of ‘food sovereignty’, the collective campaigns both on the environmental and social impacts of agriculture, trade and aid policy (for example, the impact of Free Trade Agreements or corporate control of food production and retailing) as well as having a strong emphasis on local, practical food production and community building. Some of our projects include:
- The Urban Orchard homegrown fruit and vegetable exchange. A monthly neighbourhood meeting place for the exchange of surplus backyard produce, skills and knowledge.
- The Feast of Film. An annual food and agriculture film festival, held annually showcasing some of the world’s best films on food, agriculture and community.
