The National Sustainable Living Festival reminds us that everyone has a role to play in protecting our environment. The City of Melbourne is proud to support this month long celebration which inspires numerous sustainable living ideas.

Over nearly two decades the event has grown rapidly, now hosting hundreds of organisations, performers and sustainability experts from across Australia and the world. From its base at Federation Square and Birrarung Marr, the Sustainable Living Festival spreads to encompass activities all over Melbourne in Eco-City hubs.

Visitors can enjoy the Cool Down and Power Up shady installation outside ArtPlay while enjoying a bite to eat from the sustainable food market serving delicious local, organic treats. Plus, explore backyard biodiversity, a veggie patch at Melbourne Town Hall and yoga at the Boyd Community Hub’s summer pop-up park.

As you enjoy many of the free events, we urge you to think about ways you, individually, can reduce your impact and help fight global warming. We wish you all a most successful Festival.
