More than 11,000 people came down to the Hobart Waterfront to celebrate sustainability. We learned how to make everything from Sourdough Bread and Preserves to felted clothing and retaining walls. We got to watch some amazing Tasmanians at work, creating treasurers such as violins of Tasmanian timber, leather shoes, hand spun and dyed wool, silver jewellery, and lots more.
We even made it statewide for the first time, with festival events in Burnie, Launceston, the Derwent Valley and the Huon Valley. A huge thank you to everyone that was involved, especially our wonderful sponsors and dedicated volunteers! SLF 2014 will be on 8 & 9 November, so put it in your calendar now!
On the 8th and 9th of November 2014, Princes Wharf no. 1 will be buzzing with our full festival program including:
live music, art installations, celebrity cooking demonstrations, practical workshops, amazing food & drink, and nearly 100 business and community exhibitors.

Celebrating its 16th year, the Sustainable Living Festival (SLF) has long been a highlight of the Tasmanian event calendar. Join us on 8th & 9th November 2014, at Prince's Wharf 1 on the Hobart Waterfront for our annual celebration of sustainability!
Last year, we had the Hobart waterfront buzzing with 12,000 people eager to connect and engage with sustainability and with those businesses and organisations who can help them make their dreams a reality. Our festival program will include informative talks, practical workshops, cooking demonstrations, discussions, music, art and for the very first time a Saturday night party!
Our 2014 festival theme “GET CONNECTED” will be interwoven into all elements of the program, hightlighting the interconnectivity between urban and natural ecosytems; between the various components of our Tasmanian community and between our lifestyles, well-being and sustainability.
"The Sustainable Living Festival was fabulous! I had never been before, but my friends spent all day Saturday there with their 2 kids and had such a great time that they convinced us to come back with them on Sunday! We had so much fun,Thank you!" ~ attendee quote
Coordinated by Sustainable Living Tasmania, SLF is a community celebration of sustainability. Come and join the excitement!
If you are keen to be involved in 2014, we would love to hear from you!
