Sustainable Living Weekend: Saturday 1 & Sunday 2 May, 2021

Sustainable Living Weekend 2021 was held from 1-2 May and delivered an informative and jam-packed weekend of events for the Whitehorse community.

This year’s program included 11 practical workshops and informative talks at the Box Hill Town Hall, including topics such as sustainable gardening, climate change solutions, home energy saving, sustainable fashion and native bees. There were also creative hands-on sustainability workshops at the Box Hill Community Arts Centre, and an online screening of the documentary ‘The Story of Plastic’. Around 1000 people participated in the program of events, and participant feedback showed that the events were very well received and most attendees intend to take action to live more sustainability as a result of the events.

If you missed it, you can watch the Reduce Your Winter Energy Bills session.
