Sydney Sustainable Living Festival

Event Dates: March 5, 2016 - March 20, 2016

Sydney Sustainable Living Festival celebrates projects and organisations that are making a real contribution to creating a more sustainable city.

The festival provides Sydneysiders the opportunity to explore and contribute to events across the city. It will provide a fun-filled week for families and individuals from all walks of life who are dedicated to leaving the planet in good shape for generations to come. We want to encourage people to be more aware of their decisions and the impacts of these decisions, and to provide simple but effective ways in which you can make a positive change.

For all the details visit the festival website

The inaugural Festival was held in March 2014 with 55 events hosted by 23 organisations and attracting over 4500 participants.

See below for this year’s events.
