CSU supports Hastings Sustainability Showcase in Port Macquarie


Tuesday, 13 Nov 2018

* Major Mid North Coast sustainability public event in March 2019

* Exhibitors and sponsors enquiries welcome

* Sustainability will affect the future quality of life for us all

Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Port Macquarie is a major sponsor and co-host of the Hastings Sustainability Showcase to be staged on the Mid North Coast in early March 2019.

The Port Macquarie Hastings Sustainability Network is staging the event at the Port Macquarie Racecourse on Friday 1 and Saturday 2 March 2019 with the sponsorship support of Port Macquarie Hastings Council, Holiday Coast Credit Union, and CSU Green.

Dr Nigel Urwin (pictured), senior lecturer in genetics and gene technologies in the CSU School of Biomedical Sciences in Port Macquarie said, “This event aims to educate, inform and inspire individuals and businesses on the latest ideas, products, and trends in sustainability.

“It’s important to remember that ‘sustainability’ is not a fad or buzz-word, but should be the goal of all Australians,” Dr Urwin said.

“Sustainability is the enlightened concept of how we can all live more responsibly and shape a better community in this region, in Australia and the world, in response to global environmental and population challenges confronting the planet.

“While the Hastings Sustainability Showcase is not until early next year, we welcome enquiries from potential exhibitors and sponsors for this significant free public event. Not-for-profit organisations can exhibit for free.”

The Hastings Sustainability Showcase will focus on:

* Natural environment

* Built environment

* Goods and services

* Food and agriculture

* Transport and infrastructure

* Energy

* Waste and recycling

* Health and well-being

* Tourism

* Ethical investment
