I am an academic and writer living in Melbourne. I love to travel and I also love writing about all the things Melbourne, regional Victoria and other parts of Australia have to offer.

The Sustainable Living Festival is running for the whole month of February and offers a large number of events, workshops, talks, films and exhibitions under its umbrella."It is not just a festival it is a movement", a movement for like-minded people and companies but also for those who are just venturing into the idea of making their lives more sustainable.
With over 100,000 visits every year, the event is the largest sustainability festival in Australia — and not just in numbers, but also in impact. The festival showcases cutting-edge solutions to ecological, environmental and social challenges which are facing all of us right now. It shows us how to deal with these challenges in small as well as more complex steps. This coming weekend will see lots of events all over the city, suburbs and regionally as well.
The fFestival is made up of the Climate Program, City of Sustainability, Transition Films and Festival pop-ups. Some of the highlights of the festival include:
The National Climate Emergency Summit (14-15th February)
The Power for Change (18th February)
How to talk to children about the climate crisis(25th February)
