Sustainable Futures Convention 2017

  • Communities in Action - Climate for Change

The challenges and choices of sustainable living in rural and regional communities are creating exciting opportunities. Be inspired by others active in their communities - social change makers, sustainable industries, farming and other businesses. Join us for a weekend of creative, robust and challenging conversations by exploring solutions for our future.
