An annual Festival run by Sustainable Living Tasmania with demonstrations, practical workshops and in-depth discussions designed to help people learn to live more sustainably.
The Festival, run by Sustainable Living Tasmania, is attended by approximately 10,000 people annually and celebrates sustainable living and aims to inspire people to make a positive difference. The 2015 Festival survey results show 4,590 people made their lives more sustainable as a result of attending, 78% of attendees said they had learnt something (6,630 people), rising to 85% for first time Festival goers and 94% of attendees rated it at least 7 out of 10.
The Festival provides people with the opportunity to get beyond the headlines and look deeply at the practical sustainability implications of our lifestyle to determine the best path forward. The panel discussions for example, are lead by fascinating and diverse ‘thought-leaders’ who share their views and answer audience questions on topics such as localisation, sustainable food and living simply.
In addition to the talks, discussions and workshops, the Festival buzzes with live music, art installations, kids activities and exhibits from local businesses and community groups.
