Sustainable Living Week for Albury-Wodonga

23 OCTOBER 2014

Sustainable living is the focus for a week-long event sponsored by Charles Sturt University's (CSU) Regional Centre of Expertise in Education for Sustainable Development for the Murray Darling Basin (RCE-MD) starting Sunday 26 October. Activities commence with public tours of CSU's award winning environmentally friendly buildings at its Albury-Wodonga campus, off Elizabeth Mitchell Drive, Thurgoona, commencing at 3 pm. "Host of the ABC's Gardening Australia show, Costa Georgiadis, will be at various events for adults and children during the week to encourage the people of Albury and Wodonga to support sustainable living in our region," said RCE coordinator, Dr John Rafferty. RCE-MD staff will also present displays on solar power and saving water from its mobile learning centre at the Sustainable Solutions fair in QEII Square, Dean Street, Albury at 10 am on Monday 27 October, and at Eco-Living @ the Cube, Hovell Street, Wodonga, at 10 am on Wednesday 29 October. Dr Rafferty will also host Sustainability at the Pub at Paddy's Hotel, Kiewa Street, Albury, starting at 7 pm on Wednesday 29 October, to look at local renewable energy projects and how local residents can become part of community-owned power.
