about the festival
This Festival celebrates the diversity of our region and the many ways we can all make a difference: at home, at work, at play and, in the great out-doors.
The Festival shares local wisdom, gives voice to important issues, and demonstrates the Great Southern’s creative, innovative and diverse approach toward a bright sustainable future. The interest and willingness to get involved by people and organisations around the Great Southern has been immense and heart-warming.
The FESTIVAL PROGRAM covers a broad range of family-friendly activities, events and workshops, and additional opportunities with the Festival Launch and Festival Keynote, Expo & Fair and the South Coast Festival of Birds.
To the best of our knowledge, we believe this is the only truly regional based Sustainable Living Festival in Australia.
Together let’s make 2017 a bumper event!
In 2015 the Expo & Fair re-located to the regional centre Albany, as a key event in the inaugural Great Southern Sustainable Living Festival, along with lots of other activities around the region including Denmark, Cranbrook, Ongerup, Kalgan, Bornholm and Katanning. In 2016 the Festival began to establish itself in the regional calendar.
In 2017 the Festival continues to attract attention and introduces a mini-film festival and invites regional inventors to come out and play.
Check out the program, share with friends and family.
We look forward to seeing you around.
