Enviro Trivia Contest

1 July , 2012
2:00 pmto4:00 pm

we'll give you something to puzzle over

Sunday 1 July, 2pm-4pm

Get your green thinking caps on for a cozy afternoon of environmental trivia at Port Phillip Eco Centre.

Reckon you could tell a tawny frogmouth apart from a barn owl? Do you know when the first earth day was held? or how many tonnes of pollution hazelwood power station produces annually? A tip: you’ll be needing all your senses for this quiz (and if you can recognise a few animal calls, that’ll help!)

Answer quiz questions covering natural history, geography, science and current affairs; win points in a round of charades (Could you act out ‘An Inconvenient Truth’??); plus have a go at other fun challenges to get your team over the line.

Round up your friends or come alone and join an impromptu team. The first team of five to RSVP will receive a special door prize.

There’ll be prizes/give aways for every round.  Hot drinks (inc. our house made chai) and appetizers available.

Entry: Gold coin donation.

Cycling for Sustainability: Otesha Trivia & Dinner Night

Posted in Events by Otesha on August 16th, 2010

The Otesha Project (Australia): Cycling for Sustainability is a not-for-profit organisation that offers bicycle tours and educational programs to engage youth about sustainable consumption. Using theatre, multimedia, and interactive workshops, Otesha (Aust.)’s creative focus provides a unique approach to understanding environmental and social justice issues, enabling youth to become role models and sustainability advocates.

Our first fundraising event for our 2011 tour is going to be just as creative and fun. No ordinary trivia night, trivia, Otesha style, will be interactive, and targeting all kinds of thinkers; so grab four to five mates, think up a name, and secure a starting place among a host of other trivia loving, bike riding peeps. There’ll be a prize for the winning team as well as a lucky door prize. We’ll have a raffle on the night for some cycling related gear and you’ll be able to purchase some home made treats. Trivia is compulsory, dinner is optional; but once you step through the door and smell our amazing pizzas and vegetarian curry you’ll be watering at the mouth and wishing your stomach wasn’t full! There’ll also be yummy drinks like organic chai and also some locally brewed beer and organic wine – by donation.
