Clean Energy Nillumbik, with the support of Nillumbik Shire Council’s Practically Green funding have a wide range of free events and activities to RE-imagine, RE-think and RE-energise our community in 2021.

Teens and Young Adult Climate Change Chill-out – Saturday 27 February

Talk about how it feels to be a young person facing a climate-different future and what practical action can be taken around Nillumbik to change the way our community thinks about climate change and prepare our families for a different kind of climate.

If you are between 13 and 21, join us for a very different start to 2021.

This is where to go if you want to take some action but don’t know where to start.

A little bit of naughtiness involved!

Practically Green Waste Art Sculpture

As part of the Practically Green events for 2020, Lachlan Plain was awarded the commission to create a sculpture using electronic waste that represented our future using renewable energy. Lachlan created Family Unit: 2084. Remarkably, the sculpture depicts modern family communications, predominantly using screen time – who would have thought it in 2020, the year that keeps on giving?

Keep an eye out for viewing locations

More information about electronic waste and how to dispose of it locally in a responsible way.
