Green Living Series

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.

When is the Green Living Series?

To help you to live green across the entire year we are giving you themed months and events throughout the year, meaning you will be continually inspired and connected with likeminded community members all year round!

Given COVID-19 and social distancing requirements having the Series spread throughout the year allows both time for contingency planning and the inclusion of safety procedures and measures at each event.

The series will kick off at the start of 2022, where you can expect a line-up of workshops, activities and events to entertain and inspire. Continue to check the ‘what’s on’ section for event details.

What’s On for Green Living Series

Join Wyndham's War on Waste 

Wyndham will mark Australia’s National Recycling Week by focusing on the War on Waste this November as part of the Green Living Series.

Reducing waste and recycling keeps valuable materials out of landfill, benefits the environment, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, reduces our need for new materials and ultimately, saves the environment.

The War on Waste is a worldwide battle. The actions you take this November will help the global effort to better our environment, and ultimately, our future in Wyndham and on this planet.
