Great Southern towns from Denmark and Albany in the south to Ongerup and Katanning in the north focused on sustainable living in March and April. The Green Skills Sustainable Living Festival started on Wednesday 1 March and continues into April.

On Saturday 25 March, the festival presented its highlight event, the Sustainable Living Fair and Expo, at the Albany Town Square and Town Hall.

The Sustainable Living Festival is supported by a $15,000 grant through the GSDC’s Community Chest Fund (CCF).

“The Sustainable Living Fair and Expo address important issues for Great Southern residents, who share a strong connection to our wonderful natural environment,” GSDC Chair Ross Thornton said. Preserving and building our advantages in opportunity and lifestyle over the decades ahead means living sustainably in the environment that is so significant to us.”

The Sustainable Living Fair and Expo program included renewable energy options, upcycling and recycling, electric cars, and environmental building design.
