A big weekend ahead here in Melbourne. Federation Square is hosting the Sustainable Living Festival, which included a green market place, workshops, food, events and lots of talks. You can even get a carbon neutral beer from Mountain Goat Beer! Nice.
Here are my reviews for the festival in 2008, 2009, and 2010. This will be my fourth year, which I am so looking forward to. The best part I like are the interesting, like-minded people I meet, and the presentations. This year will be no exception, and in fact I will be attending Saturday and Sunday sporting my brand new “Greening of Gavin” tee-shirt that Kim bought me for Christmas (you know that self promotion and modesty is not one of my weak spots!)
Anyway, I hope those of you who live in Melbourne can make it to the event. It promises to be fantastic as always, and I hope to meet Clive Hamilton (author of Requiem for a Species and Affluenza), and the Garbage Warrior himself, Michael Reynolds, the architect behind the Earthship on Sunday. What this space for some interesting video of this years festival.
Here is the official promo video for the event. I hope to see you there!
Sounds interesting, we are having a similar festival this spring for the first time! I especially like the video with David Suzuki flying like a super hero…
