Event description
Zero Waste Revolution are excited to announce our third annual Zero Waste Festival in Canberra!

About this event

COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to ongoing lockdowns in Canberra, the Zero Waste Festival has been postponed to Saturday 30 April, 2022. The festival will still be held at Kambri, and will still feature the same great lineup of workshops and speakers. Register for the event to be the first to receive updates and info.

The theme of this year's festival is: One Person, a World of Difference. Waste is a growing crisis all over the world, and it's going to take each one of us to step up and take action to change that.

Through a packed day of panels and workshops, we will explore practical actions we can take to collectively reduce our impact on the planet and inspire others to join us! Everyone is invited, no matter where you are on your journey to reduce waste.

Opening the festival will be the ever-inspiring Solli Raphael. Solli was crowned youngest ever Australian Poetry Slam champion at only 12-years-old and has already successfully published two books. Now 16, he is a budding humanitarian and environmental conservationist who uses original work to instigate conversations about issues that affect future generations, and he's got a particularly strong passion for reducing waste.

Attendance to the festival (including stalls, the keynote speech, panel discussions and app launch) is free. RSVP to this event to let us know you're coming and to receive reminders. Workshops at the festival are ticketed with a small cost. Rego and tickets for each individual session will be available closer to the event.

Panel discussions:

• Zero in Our Own Backyard

• Be a Hero of Zero

• Our Roadmap to Zero

Workshops (must book in advance):

• 11-11:45am - Are you recycling right?

• 12-12:45pm - Composting at home.

• 1:15-2:15pm - Clothes Swap.

There will also be a range of stalls showcasing local organisations and zero waste businesses, as well as a zero waste craft area and face painting for kids.
