Susanna Bevilacqua’s career spans over twenty years in the banking industry, most recently working with Bendigo Bank as the Community and Business Development Manager. Her role entails working with local communities in the metropolitcal to empower them to create sustainable income streams to support local initiatives via the Bendigo Bank Connected Communities model.

In 2009 after visiting some of the poorest countries and communities in South East Asia and witnessing first hand the working conditions and environmental impact of mass consumerism, Susanna established Moral Fairground with the aim to build awareness and educate about ethically, socially responsible and environmentally aware businesses through a series of events.

Susanna’s aim was to create opportunities for people from all walks of life to connect with fair trade and ethical businesses and therefore launched Fair@Square in 2009, now the largest fair trade and ethical festival in Australia. The event which now attracts over 78.000 visitors allows consumers to learn about the impact of their purchases and how every individual an contribute towards a sustainable and more transparent society

Moral Fairground is a member of the Fair Trade Association of Australia and New Zealand and also hosts the Victorian Fair Trade Festival during the Fair Trade Fortnight every year with a number of activities spanning over the two weeks.

In 2013 Moral Fairground launched the national Ethical Enterprise Award in partnership with Australian Ethical. The award was born out of a desire to recognise and celebrate the achievements of Australia’s most inspirational enterprises. The Award recognised enterprises that have a positive social and economic impact through innovative ethical business practices.

Moral Fairground is now endeavoring to build a community of like minded ethical businesses via it’s membership base, that are willing to support each other in order to grow the ethical sector

Sustainability Drinks Australia

Sustainability Drinks emerged with a casual get together of ten people and now, 7 years on, offers an environment which nurtures and fosters the sharing of sustainability success stories and hosts thousands of people each month across Australia.


The events run from 6-8pm on a select day of every month and a speaker presents for 10 minutes at 7pm.


The Sustainability Drinks belief is that through the sharing of ideas, and stories of success, we can help create the change that we want to see in this world.


These events provide an opportunity to meet other people interested in creating a more sustainable world, exchange ideas and hear different perspectives about the social and environmental challenges we face. Attendees meet a wide range of passionate people who are interested in making a positive difference.


At Sustainability Drinks you buy your own drinks (we provide some complimentary nibbles) and the atmosphere enables people to introduce themselves and feel comfortable with meeting new people and exchanging ideas. We encourage people to join us and invite friends and colleagues who share the same values.


An open invitation is extended to all who are “passionate about sustainability” to come and mingle with like minded people and listen to a speaker share their sustainability story.

When you register to attend, please share with your social networks and encourage other interested friends and colleagues to join us for a great evening.
