For Earth Day 2023, we invite you to join us in a Poetry Slam Festival and explore together how we can re-imagine our world. We welcome students, staff and community to join us.

The effects of our changing climate are evident worldwide, with extreme weather events occurring with increasing frequency and societies rapidly needing to adapt their lives and communities. We need to act now to re-imagine a better world. What is your vision for a world that is fairer to all; that nurtures natural environments; that uses resources respectfully and eliminates waste; that is inclusive, respectful and loving to all living things?
Slam poetry is a form of performance poetry that doesn’t rely on traditional poetic forms and techniques, such as rhyming stanzas. It is free-flowing and expressive and growing in popularity the world over. The Festival is hosted by the International Universities Climate Alliance, in collaboration with The World Poetry Slam Organization, Climate Students Movement and the UNSW Faculty of Arts, Design and Architecture. The Festival celebrates Earth Day with a series of in-person and virtual poetry workshops, a Poetry Slam competition and finale events. If you are new to slam poetry or curious to see more, here are some examples of performances: World Poetry Slam Organization – YouTube
