Smart Living Workshops
The “Smart Living Workshop Series” has been developed to assist Warrnambool residents to reduce their environmental footprint, greenhouse gas emissions and unnecessary costs as a result of unsustainable living. The objects of the workshop series are to:
- Reduce household energy use.
- Reduce waste going to landfill.
- Reduce water use.
- Reduce household greenhouse gas emissions.
- Reduce barriers to community uptake of retrofitting technology and financial assistance in the form of rebates for households.
- Build community capacity and knowledge on sustainable living.
- Assist the community to prepare for a carbon constrained future.
Using a combination of theory and hands on education the “Smart Living Workshop Series” will enable participants to build knowledge and practical skills to implementing sustainable actions in the home.
