Hello from Sustainable Living Tasmania

Sustainable Living Tasmania is supporting, and helping to organise two very different, and inspiring, upcoming events.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Moving towards a Regenerative Future with the Living Building Challenge

Event Notification

Sustainable Living Tasmania is supporting this 'Living Building Challenge', convened by architect and SLT member Tim Williams.

You are cordially invited to join us at a unique and inspiring event “Moving towards a Regenerative Future with the Living Building Challenge”.

This is an open and free Public Forum, Panel Discussion and Q & A session with four experts in the field.

WHEN:   Tuesday 29 March 2022, 5:45-8:00pm (please arrive 15 minutes early)

Bahá’í Centre of Learning, 1 Tasman Highway, Hobart, 7000

Event Description:
What if every act of design and construction could make the world, and Tasmania, a better place?

Regenerative frameworks, like the Living Building Challenge (LBC), prove that buildings can give more than they take without compromising aesthetic, commercial viability, human health or the environment.

Created by the International Living Future Institute (ILFI) and supported in Australia by the Living Future Institute of Australia (LFIA), the LBC and Living Community Challenge (LCC) are a holistic, high-performing and forward-looking approach.

Through exploring local and international case studies, we aim to offer a new perspective and hopeful way to improve the state of our current, 'development-at-any cost', architectural and urban planning design solutions.  This can apply as much to Greater Hobart as it does all around Tasmania, by incorporating the 'Living Building Challenge' and the 'Living Community Challenge' principles into our strategic approach and even our legislative and regulatory approval systems.

We are offering an inspiring, open and free Public Forum with an expert Panel of speakers including four international, national and local proponents of these two regenerative frameworks. 

Screening of 'Regenerating Australia' (Damon Gameau's latest film)

Another item for your calendar: the evening of Friday 13 May 2022in the Hobart Town Hall, there will be a special screening of Damon Gameau's latest film 'Regenerating Australia'.

Damon will be there to lead a Q&A. His film '2040' a few years ago was an inspiration for those of us losing hope on climate action. This is the next episode. It's a short film, but a great inspiration and it will be wonderful to tap into Damon's energy.

So, put the date in your diary for you and your family and friends, and watch out for ticketing information.
