Wyndham City’s Green Living Series is making a return in 2020, with more than 40 events planned to inspire a more sustainable and connected lifestyle.
The annual program, running through February and March, includes a variety of events held at locations across Wyndham.
Wyndham City Environment and Sustainability Portfolio Holder Cr Heather Marcus encouraged residents to check out the range of events on offer.
“This is the seventh year we’ve held the Green Living Series. It launched in 2014 as a trial, with just 10 events attended by 179 people. Last year we had more than 40 events, with around 4,100 people attending—and I’m confident this year will be bigger and better than ever before,” Cr Marcus said.
The Green Living Series will be launched with a screening of the documentary 2040 on Saturday, 1 February, followed by a Q&A session with film director Damon Gameau. This film follows Gameau, concerned about his daughter’s future, as he travels the world in search of new and innovative approaches and solutions to climate change.
Other highlights of the Series include food demonstrations and tastings, seaweed foraging, information sessions on solar energy, sustainable fashion, Aboriginal cultural activities and a tour of Mount Rothwell.
“These events are just the tip of the iceberg, and I’d encourage residents to visit our website for a full listing of events,” Cr Marcus said.
