These free workshops draw on wisdom and experiences from Indigenous, multicultural and intergenerational cultures. Entire generations that have fostered harmonious living between humans and the environment.

How to Book:

The workshops are free and open to all, but numbers are strictly limited. Book now to avoid the disappointment of missing out.

The Speakers:
This interactive workshop will feature expert speakers including:
- Tony Ayers (a descendant of Aboriginal clan in South East Queensland, with extensive experience promoting the culture of first nation people)
- Representatives from the Balaangala Garden Space (a thriving Indigenous garden created by an active reconciliation group on Brisbane's northside) and

You will also be provided with sustainably sourced food and a film screening.

This workshop will help participants to understand what they can do on a practical level to change behaviour towards sustainability. Discussions will look at a myriad of ideas on how our actions and thoughts can help us to build strong, healthy and resilient communities.

With so much happening around the world, this is a lovely way to start making sustainable changes in our own backyards.
