Over 70% of foods we consume on a daily basis are processed, and according to the World Health Organisation, if current trends continue one billion people will be obese by 2030; which means our population is heading for an exponentially increasing number of health problems.
The revolutionary documentary, Overfed & Undernourished, is interspersed with interviews and advice from leading health and wellbeing experts from around the globe, and provides the audience with simple solutions to improve the quality of their own diet, lifestyle, and personal bonds, and asks the fundamental question – are we really nourishing ourselves? The message in the film follows the powerful, positive, raw, open and honest story of 11 year old Liam – weighing over 80kg – who seeks help from his aunty and uncle.
The Premiere events in Brisbane and Melbourne include a health exhibition from 6pm, with the film starting at 7pm, and a Q&A held after the film.

Fair@Square, Australia's largest fair-trade and ethical festival, will attempt to break a world record this October as they line the banks of the Yarra River with multi-coloured, hand woven, recycled rugs.
However this attempt to break the longest line of such rugs has a bigger purpose; to raise awareness and funds for the women who have made the rugs. These women are mothers from Cambodia who are desperately trying to keep their children off the streets.
RMIT students will also be selling hand made cushions made from fair-trade cotton on the day, with the funds to also go towards Cambodian mothers.
Fair@Square attracts around 76, 000 people every year; this year, be one of them!
Where: Federation Square
When: 10:30am, Friday 26th of October, 2012

They’re the inheritors of this planet, and when it comes to the state we’re leaving it to them, they have plenty to say about it…
They’re the cute and cuddly inheritors of our planet, but if we’re to pass on a world that is brilliant rather than broken, we need to ensure our babies are as green, ethical and healthy as they are gorgeous.
As we spend more and more of our lives indoors, our physical, emotional and mental health is suffering. Turns out a good dose of fresh air can give us, and our children, a lot more than a rosy glow!
