Wyndham’s Green Living Series happens annually with a wide range of sustainable living workshops and events, aimed at building skills and providing tips to live a little greener. The series includes a mixture of community and council run events with a range of exciting workshops, field days and events hosted by passionate and knowledgeable presenters or community members.
We will be bringing you a mix of virtual and physical events throughout the entire year; our themed months and yearly program will mean you be inspired to live green all year round.
The Green Living series comes under our Resilient Wyndham Strategy 2021-2025, which helps guide Wyndham City’s work so our community bounces back, adapts, survives and thrives in the face of potential future events such as climate change, extreme weather, natural disasters, pandemics, cyber-security attacks and economic downturn. Resilience is about being prepared for the unexpected, and building our sustainable living skills is another way we’re making Wyndham more resilient.
