Dubbo Sustainable City Expo

Many people want to reduce their environmental footprint, but making the commitment to do so can be difficult given today’s busy lifestyles. That’s why Dubbo City Council is showcasing ideas to make it easier for people to live sustainably.

Now in its ninth year, the Dubbo Sustainable City Expo has grown from an information night in 2006 to an all-day event, consistently attracting a growing number of exhibitors and attendees.

“Last year we had a fantastic turn out with over 400 residents attending and more than 30 exhibitor displays promoting a variety of green initiatives including energy and water efficient technologies, composting and recycling, native plants and local produce,” said Catriona Jennings, Dubbo City Council’s Sustainability Coordinator.

Riding on last year’s success, the Inspiring Australia–funded Science Café will again present live conversations with local scientists from a diverse range of backgrounds including climate change, threatened species, ecology, sustainable agriculture, and energy.

Be inspired by the world of science, learn about science careers, and the work being completed around the country to help achieve a sustainable future. And of course, alongside all these exciting talks, delicious coffee and cake will be on offer.

Science Café is a Central West Science Hub initiative, presented by Dubbo City Council in partnership with Dubbo Field Naturalist and Conservation Society, Taronga Western Plains Zoo and Wambangalang Environmental Education Centre.

When: Saturday 23 August, 9am – 2pm
Where: Dubbo Regional Botanic Garden
