The health and safety of people attending GS events, including our volunteers, is our number one priority. Given the government public health advice in relation to the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are now able to resume face-to-face events at this time.
We’re now offering Climate Action Drinks, Clever Living seminars and Life Learning classes in person.
Geelong Sustainability organises a wide range of events and activities. We also participate in and/or support many other local events. So in 2021, we encourage you to get involved! Join in our fun activities - Be connected - Help us lead change in our region!
In 2020, we're revamped our usual Green Drinks networking forum. In 2021 we're going to alternate between hosting Climate Action Drinks and Networking Drinks. Climate Action Drinks will focus on building our advocacy and raising our voices. While Networking Drinks will share innovative ideas for tackling the climate emergency, often from our business members.
Lookout for our 2021 Life Learning season being organised now. There'll be interesting new classes.
Great ideas don't have to cost the earth - knowledge is the key. In 2021, our very successful Clever Living Event Series sponsored by The Gordon is returning with some new ideas for events, presented by leading experts.
Sustainable House Day is a national event coordinated regionally by Geelong Sustainability in conjunction with the City of Greater Geelong. This unique event gives the public an opportunity to tour exemplar sustainable homes, chat directly with homeowners and receive free advice from local experts. SHD2021 event will be held on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 October - save the date!
We endeavour to promote relevant national and international days and weeks compiled by the Dept of Environment and Energy. We totally support the goals of the International Decade of Sustainable Energy for All (2014-24).
Geelong Community Solar Program
Designed by Geelong Sustainability to increase renewable energy in our region, this program leverages the buying power of the community to provide quality, affordable solar and battery storage for homes and businesses.
You’ll get leading product warranties and quality components in a system specifically tailored to you. Using the best local installers, it will also make a positive impact on the local economy.
Every installation helps our community
For every home or business that takes part, a solar panel will be donated to a non-profit community project!
