Green Living – Learn how at the Sustainable Living Festival
Sustainability is one of the most important issues of our time, and if you're eager to discover more about it, head to the Sustainable Living Festival.
This is taking place in Melbourne's Federation Square from February 8-23, offering plenty of opportunities to learn about ecological and social challenges in Australia and around the world, and how they can be tackled.
You'll find news of incorporating sustainable practices into your life and are bound to feel empowered to spread the message. Interactive workshops, discussions, demonstrations, exhibitions, films, art and live performance are all part of the festival program.
Many of the main events take place during what is known as the 'Big Weekend Showcase' from February 14-16. During this time, head to Federation Square for all sorts of sustainability-themed event highlights.
"If you need holiday accommodation for your trip to Melbourne for the Sustainable Living Festival, try Mantra Southbank or Mantra on Little Bourke.
One of the biggest drawcards of the weekend is the Green Market, which features over 100 exhibitors. Here, you can try organic beer and wine, as well as plenty of fresh food and produce. Gardening and building products and ethically-produced clothing will also be on offer, while environmental campaign groups will be there to engage in discussion.
If you're in town for this festival, Mantra Southbank and Mantra on Little Bourke are just a short, 5 minute walk from Federation Square and are close to other key locations such as Flinders St Station, Arts Centre Melbourne and the Melbourne Concert Hall.
Book a suite or a one or two bedroom apartment that will fulfil your accommodation needs with cooking facilities, an in-house restaurant and bar and great overall service so you can enjoy the Sustainable Living Festival in comfort and style.
