CFI is the National Backbone of ChangeFest

ChangeFest is the nation-wide movement for place-based change in Australia that celebrates the significance of place and the progress being made. It supports the movement to learn and strengthen our understanding of community-led approaches and is a demonstration of how initiatives across diverse lands are encouraging collaboration across sectors, meaningful engagement, and elevating First Nations and community voices as a pathway for transformative change.

Since 2018 the movement has gathered together for four country-wide events. Starting in 2018 Logan (Yagara and Yugambeh Country), then 2019 Mt Druitt (Darug Country), 2020 Palmerston (Larrakia Country), and most recently 2023 Lutruwita/Tasmania (Palawa Country) and in 2024 will be held on Ladji Ladji Country in Mildura, VIC.
