During 2021, with ongoing lockdowns and limitations on face-to-face gatherings, two members of Transition 3081 took advantage of a local Council program to learn skills in digital storytelling – combining the tradition of storytelling with digital technology.

Here is the video Yennie Yong and Yukima Cameron created, highlighting what Transition 3081 is all about. We invite you to sit back and relax and allow yourself six minutes of your day to watch this story, and see how it connects with your own dreams and activities.


You can see more of the videos created through Banyule Council’s digital storytellers 2021 program here https://www.banyule.vic.gov.au/News-items/Digital-stories-from-environmental-leaders

And you can read about the work of Digital Storytellers here https://www.digitalstorytellers.com.au/

If your group has created a digital story we invite you to send us the link and we will build up, on this Transition Australia website, an easy-to-find collection of digital stories of local groups and their activities.

Just an added snippet of information: the site of the veggie swap in the video was the site of the  Olympic Village built in Melbourne to accommodate the athletes for the 1956 Olympic Games.
