Sustainable Futures Festival
Gympie Showgrounds
23rd June 2024
9am - 3pm

 

Sustainable Futures Festival has evolved from the combination of both the Gympie Landcare Festival and Envirotech Gympie. These were organized by Gympie and District Landcare Group (GDLG) and Gympie and District Sustainability Alliance (GADSA).  Their similar objectives with emphasis on different areas of the sustainability story is what makes the Sustainable Futures Festival a unique local event, incorporating all aspects that make up our wonderful region: environment, community and business.

Join Qld TOCA at this fantastic event.

Sustainable Futures Festival will demonstrate ideas and ways to ensure a positive future for community, environment and business for the Gympie Region.  This will include:

  • Promotion of renewable energy systems to reduce our use of coal and gas for energy making the energy grid more resilient, lower in cost and greenhouse gas free,
  • Promotion of the best land and water management practices to sustain agricultural production, biodiversity and food security for our community,
  • Promotion of building energy efficiency tools to reduce energy use by households, especially in social and rental properties and making these more suitable for our warming climate,
  • Demonstrations of Electric Vehicles to reduce the cost of fuel imports and air pollution which improves the health outcomes for many urban populations,
  • Demonstration of how waste can be minimised by careful sorting and judicious reuse,      repurposing or recycling of many items to reduce our energy use to make new products, while also reducing our need for new raw materials.
  • Support our biodiversity by restoration and protection of our natural landscapes, planting of native species in our gardens and wider landscape, and helping our native species to survive their altered environments.
  • Ensure our community is inclusive, tolerant and supportive of all within it.

 

This free event is open to everyone. Come along and look listen talk and we hope you can find some actions you can take to help make our community more sustainable. Remember, many small changes can make a huge cumulative impact.
