Event description

Description

Aussie Street is the history and future of suburbia as a serious but humorous presentation by permaculture co-originator David Holmgren. Over more than a decade this presentation has inspired creative household and neighbourhood responses to climate, energy and economic threats that increasingly cast a pall over the future of suburbia.

Rather than condemning our history and prospects, Aussie St empowers and enlivens us. Aussie St is now a short story built into a new book Retrosuburbia; the downshifter guide to a resilient future. This manual draws together the patterns glimpsed in the presentation both of which have been transformed by Brenna Quinlan beautiful illustrations.

The new Aussie Street is not just a slicker presentation of an existing idea. With the book and the website it has become a positive vision, a set of tools and an expanding network of real people living well now for a resilient future. Hear one of Australia’s most engaging and visionary environmental thinkers present one of the most empowering ideas of our time.

Moonee valley City Council is delivering this event as part of the National Sustainable Living Festival 2019.
