Each year CERES Global spends 6 weeks in India and invites interested people to join us on a socio-environmental and cultural journey focused on mutual learning and exchange. As a past participant explains, “I took away a sense of humanity of possibility, a beautiful sense of how big the world is”.

CERES Global works with communities and organisations in India to generate solutions that are community driven and meet the needs identified by members of the community. Project sustainability is a key aspect of successfully engaging with communities and projects are designed and implemented with these principles in mind.

Another SSA Village SnapShot – The Sustainability Street Approach – Walton Ave – Sustainability Street Party

Sustainability Street has always been about reaching out into the community and celebrating our achievements. What better way to do this than a street party where everyone is invited. While Sammy Star kept the kids happy, the adults swapped over their old showerheads for new efficient ones, made soap, had their homes audited, free cycled, met the neighbours and talked about the things they have done and the things they can do. A great time was had by all.

Thanks to the folks of Walton Ave for organising the party and Darebin Council for supplying the marquees and Stuart Nesbitt for the auditing.
