Practically Green

Re-imagine Re-think Re-energise - sustainability events for Nillumbik

Clean Energy Nillumbik (CEN) will be planning and delivering Nillumbik’s Practically Green events in 2020, 2021 and 2022. 

They have been funded by Council and have an exciting series of events planned for the Shire throughout spring. You can look forward to some fun new events and ideas, as well as programs you can join.

It’s an exciting time in energy with so many new technologies and ideas becoming the new norm. Many people want more action to address climate change and CEN is demonstrating practical ways for the Nillumbik community to help make a difference.

Here’s what CEN has planned:

September      Re-imagine: Sustainable House Day Nillumbik Trail – gather inspiration about simple actions you can take to make your home more comfortable and inexpensive to run.

October           Re-think: Speed Date a Sustainability Expert – make free appointments with experts in energy efficiency, building, water savings, insulation, solar, batteries and more. 

November       Re-energise: The Re-energise hub at Eltham Town Festival – connect with information, products and suppliers to make your home and business more sustainable.

Also, don’t miss:

  • A bulk purchase of energy efficient appliances for home and work – there’s more to life than solar you know!
  • An electric vehicle display featuring a range of vehicles currently available.
  • Some spectacular art featuring some of our most problematic waste products.

Some of the events may be reimagined into different formats in response to COVID-19, watch this space.

If you are interested in participating in one of the events or would like to join Clean Energy Nillumbik as a member or volunteer contact CEN at

CEN are looking for active and enthusiastic Nillumbik residents and business owners who can help with all the above events. There are lots of jobs so they’ll match you to tasks that fit your interests, skills and available time. Don’t be shy.

Clean Energy Nillumbik (CEN) started in 2017 with a strategy to have 100% of Nillumbik’s buildings powered by renewable energy by 2028. CEN is incorporated and has a committee and membership of local residents and businesses, all committed to addressing climate change through reducing emissions from fossil fuels.
