Hear stories from the urban jungle about the rare and unusual organisms sharing our environment and how we can better protect these special creatures. With many threatened species calling Melbourne home, including 46 species listed under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999, you could have a swift parrot, a growling grass frog or a spider-orchid as a neighbour. Learn from ecologists and conservationists about their habitats and how you can better share the city with these hidden living treasures.

Carbon neutral contribution
Melbourne Knowledge Week is committed to reducing its impact on the environment and will be certified carbon neutral for 2019.
This means we will measure the festival’s carbon emissions and implement actions to reduce them. Then we will purchase offsets on your behalf to cover the remaining emissions and achieve carbon neutrality.
Your contribution will go towards a range of offset projects including a reforestation project in NSW and a project which enables Aboriginal communities to reduce emissions through improved land management practices in the Kimberley.
Take action on climate change, act now.
