This Sunday I have been invited to speak at the opening of the Footprints EcoFestival at Whites Creek Valley Park in Annandale.
Now in its seventh year, the festival is a celebration of all things sustainable in the Inner West, with a variety of workshops taking place centred on the art of living without waste.
The festival is of particular importance this time around, as the newly formed Inner West Craft Brewers’ Association have also been invited to be a part of the celebrations.
The IWCBA have partnered with the Footprints Film Festival and their bicycle powered cinema, to provide a craft beer garden for festivalgoers, which I am predicting will be a huge success.
Environmental sustainability is an issue that needs to be addressed at a local level if we are going to conquer the wider threat that things like climate change, waste production and deforestation pose to the planet.
Events like the Footprints EcoFestival help to educate and encourage sustainable lifestyles that help to keep our community green.
