Canberra’s inaugural ‘Living Green Festival’ will focus on the relationship between climate change, the environment, and animals. The Festival will raise awareness about how the choices we make in our everyday lives can affect not only the environment, but also humans and other animals. The theme of the Festival is ‘a kinder shade of green’, and it will showcase easy ways we humans can reduce our carbon footprint and be more considerate of the other animals we share this planet with. It will feature sustainable, fair trade and cruelty-free food, products and services; market stalls; talks on environmental, animal protection and health issues; free yoga and gardening workshops; live music and dance performances; children’s entertainment and more! All of which will combine to create a fun-filled festival and market atmosphere coinciding with the last day of Floriade in the Capital.
The Living Green Festival will be held in the recently refurbished Albert Hall on Sunday 16 October 2011 between 10am and 4pm. The Hall is easy to get to by public transport, bike, and on foot, and a short walk from Floriade. The Festival is assisted by the ACT Government Climate Change Grants.
