Event description
The Zero Waste Festival will demonstrate practical ways to live with zero waste and inspire you to take action.

About this Event

Canberra’s first Zero Waste Festival will be Sept. 7, 2019 from 11AM to 3PM at the Peninsula Room of the National Museum of Australia. It will feature talks and workshops to demonstrate practical ways to live with zero waste and to inspire you to take action.

Stalls will connect you with Canberra businesses and organisations with zero waste at the centre of their enterprise.

Workshops will provide you with practical skills on topics like composting, sewing and halving your waste.

The talks program will feature panel discussions on:

Plastic free living

International best practice in waste management

Re-use in focus

Sustainable fashion

Be part of the first Australian trial that will transform running shoes into park benches by bringing in your old runners (don’t put them in the rubbish bin).

We’ll provide zero waste craft activities for children and the festival is located right beside the Garden of Australian Dreams, a perfect all-ages outdoor play area.

Program details will be available closer to the event. Participating in the talks program and children’s craft will be free. As there is limited availability for our hugely popular workshop program, we will be charging a small participation fee and participants will be invited to book in advance.
