Where: Shed 4 North Wharf Road Docklands VIC 3006. Map: 2E 7D
RSVP essential to: rsvp@ sustainablemelbourne.com by 20 Febuary 2009
What: It may seem strange that weve highlighted sharing as a sustainability issue. Yet as the West has become more industrialised weve also grown more individualised producing more products per person. At this Sustainable Cities Round Table we explore how we can learn to share again. Topics include shared spaces, such as composts and co-houses; shared products and materials, such as the renewed retro world of no longer daggy hand-me-downs, and shared services, such as permablitzes and group purchasing power.

Speakers include:
Kate Pears, My Sisters Wardrobe
Adam Grubb, Permablitz
Joanne Hay, Herdshare
Paul Brown, Ironbark Sustainability
Lincoln Smith, Growlocal.net.au
Dianne Moy, Victorian Eco-Innovation Lab
Iain Walker, Banyule Co-Housing Project
Glenda Lindsay, Community Compost project
A representative, Green Hanger

25th – 28th February Shed 4 Docklands
What does Melbourne look like in 2032? The Victorian Eco-Innovation Lab (VEIL), funded by the Victorian Sustainability Fund, has looked at the last remaining vacant land available for development in Melbournes CBD known as E-Gate and applied some very radical thinking. For more information about the ECO-CITY Melbourne visit www.ecoinnovationlab.com.

The Sustainable Cities Round Tables are regular events that feature a variety of speakers who provide three minute glimpses of what they are doing to create a sustainable Melbourne. The talks are diverse in their perspective, topics and approaches whilst also balancing well-known leaders with fresh, local talent. Each event includes workshops designed to engage the entire audience. To see footage of previous events visit www.sustainablemelbourne.com/category/sustainable-cities-round-tables/.
