Sustainable Living Tasmania is a group of committed, passionate people. We're practical, idealistic, positive, realistic and informed. We come from all walks of life and we all have the same goal: to live in vibrant, healthy communities that are prepared for the challenges of the future.
SLT has been around for almost forty years getting on with the job of helping people in our community live in a way that costs less, is healthier and more enjoyable.
"Our Purpose - To build a sustainable living movement in Tasmania that drives transformational change"
We're non-political and not-for-profit. This means people power allows us to do all the great things we do.
Add your voice to ours to allow us to continue to do all these things:
- Inform: last year we provided free advice to over 600 Tasmanians by phone, email and in person. Thousands of our popular Sustainable Living Guides were distributed last year in hard copy and as internet downloads. We make tricky subjects simpler.
- Speak out: We provide unbiassed, up-to-date information about urban sustainability issues. We're advocates who attend most sustainability-related events in Tasmania. In fact politicians from all major parties contact us for advice and information on sustainability. We're also the people the media ask for impartial information for their stories.
- Connect and contribute: We regularly get our members together at all kinds of talks, events, workshops, expos and seminars so we can meet, share information, learn and contribute. Members are often the first to hear what's happening in Tasmania.
- Organise, administer and matchmake: SLT has helped numerous community groups to apply for and administer funding for their programs – from school kitchen gardens to Peak Oil (see Programs and Partnerships for more information)
We're making a difference and we need your help. People-power only works with the power and contributions of people like you. Find out how to get involved.
