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.

Then….circle Saturday September 24 on your calendar!

That’s the day we’re calling Shake Your ACT!

What: Speakers, live music, fun ride and giant human sign
When: 12:30 – 16:00 Saturday 24th September
Where: Start Garema Place; ride to Parliament

Shake Your ACT! is part of’s Moving Planet Events. It is a day for people, world over, to show that they:
• believe in the need to move beyond fossil fuels;
• are willing to do what it takes to achieve this and
• are going to have some fun in the process.

Just imagine the spectacle: thousands of people encircling national capitals, state houses, city halls!

In Canberra, we’re taking our message to Parliament!

We’ll kick off in Garema Place (12.30pm) with inspirational speakers and live music, then ride our bikes to Parliament house (leaving Garema Place at 2.50pm sharp).

There we will form a giant human sign urging our leaders and nation to move ahead in the transition to a clean energy future.

Never before has demanding action been so much fun!

So, come along on September 24 and take part in a global movement for change. And tell everyone you know to come too! (by distributing the attached flyers).
