Event description

Description

The Zero Waste Festival's aim is to provide people with ideas and skills, guiding sustainable habit change, sharing practical resources and connecting with community. This event will comprise inspiring presentations, information stalls, workshops, music, and more showing ways to creatively and economically reduce waste, rethink resource reuse, and to empower community focused environmental actions.

This event is the largest Zero Waste focused festival in Australia, and is supported by passionate Zero Waste Victoria volunteers.

Entry to the Festival is by donation, so we can keep it accessible for all. There are some ticketed events with a fee. Proceeds will support Zero Waste Victoria's endeavours to tackle the war on waste with a focus on education, research and advocacy campaigns.

The day will kick off with an in conversation discussion and audience Q&A on "What is the formula for a Zero Waste city?” The panel, facilitated by Zero Waste Victoria represents three sectors associated with waste – community, industry and government.

  • Lauren and Oberon Carter, authors of A Family Guide to Waste-Free Living;
  • David Holmgren, co-founder of permaculture, author of a number of books, most recently, RetroSuburbia: The Downshifter Guide to a Resilient Future;
  • Veronica Shannon, founder of Retub, who provide reusable takeaway containers;
  • Nina Taylor MP who is passionate about tackling climate change, and fighting social justice issues.

There is limited seating available for this presentation, so this is a ticketed event.

A clothes swap will be held from 11:30am to 1:30pm. If you would like to participate, purchase a clothes swap ticket and bring up to 10 items in excellent condition to swap and refresh your wardrobe. This even includes a Styling Sustainable Fashion demonstration by Nina Gbor. More information in the ticketing section. This event is supported by The Clothing Exchange.

The day will be jam packed with workshops, activities and entertainment including a Repair Cafe, plogging, workshops turning waste and preventing waste such as making dishclothes, mosaic art, clothing mending and much more. Full speaker details and program schedule will be released soon...

The list of exhibitors and participants is listed on our website.
