Current classes on offer
Geelong Sustainability aims to inform, inspire and connect people.
What we do?
Life Learning is affordable, community-driven, fun education in Geelong.
We host informal classes for curious people looking to try something new without a hefty price tag! Our classes are an affordable $12 (+materials if required) with a discount for GS members.
All of our course topics are dreamed up under the One Planet Living Principles of Health & Happiness, Culture & Community and Sustainability.
Topics like life skills, language, craft, sustainability, food, psychology, science, social issues, art, dance, literature, music, DIY, gardening, design, philosophy and relaxation are on our ‘to do’ list.
Most of all we encourage people to learn interesting ‘new stuff’ in a fun, social environment.
We are also open to suggestions for classes.
What are classes like?
Classes will run for 1.25 hrs in cafes, bars, galleries and other vibrant spaces. There will be a maximum of 20-25 people so it creates a fun learning environment and social vibe. Many of the classes will be interactive and there will be an opportunity to meet new people simply by learning a new skill.
Every class is totally different. Some of our teachers are pros at what they do, some are hobbyists or enthusiasts; it’s just about sharing knowledge they are excited about.
No matter what the class or who is teaching, our classes are laid back, fun, and participatory. Your involvement in class – whether through discussion or something hands on – is what makes it all the more enjoyable.
Please Note: Classes are for adults only.
Who can teach?
You just need a passion for the topic and a desire to share it with others. We assist with the planning, take care of sign ups and marketing so you can focus on the important stuff of just inspiring others.
The idea is to offer informal classes to curious people wanting to learn something new! It is a place to experiment with topics, hobbies and new ideas.
