What is the Better Futures Forum?
The Better Futures Forum is BFA's unique, national platform for climate action. The BFF is a catalyst for the innovations and opportunities of energy transformation in Australia.
Better Futures Australia has hosted two forum's in Canberra, in 2021 and 2022 and provided a national moment for climate champions from across Australian society to converge. The Forums have been supported by media partners, BFA members, and attendees who drive climate action in their sectors and communities. Leaders in energy, business, finance, health, agriculture, transport, local and state government, unions, and First Nations communities showcased their plans and achievements in reducing carbon emissions, and publicly launched their collective commitment to ambitious national climate action.
