Green Cities 2012

5-7 March 2012. Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre

Green Cities, the largest green building conference in Asia-Pacific, comes to Sydney in 2012 and will showcase the best and brightest green building professionals, industry experts and manufacturers for three days of green building conversation, innovation and collaboration.

In 2011, Green Cities got its mojo back, and in 2012 the conference will continue to challenge the green building status quo and push the industry towards better environmental, social and economic outcomes.

Join us in Sydney this March and think green building solutions. More information http://greencities.org.au/

Play: the ASIX Social Changemakers Exhibition and Art Prize 2012

 

Art has always had the power to make a difference – to change the way we look at things, the way we feel about things and indeed, the things we consider at all. And historically, art has played a central role in defining society and bringing about positive change.

In recognition of this, we are introducing the ASIX Social Changemakers Art Prize, whereby non-established artists with a passion for social changemaking are invited to submit artworks to a special exhibition for the chance to win $3,000.

The exhibition will be organised by the Australian Social Innovation eXchange (ASIX) as part of its Australian Social Changemakers’ Festival in April 2012 and held at Weave Arts Centre in the CarriageWorks precinct.

The work must be connected to the creative statement and revolve around the notion of play. For more details download the Creative statement and brief.

A new website to help you build sustainably.

Australian Living, a leading Sustainable Building Consultancy, has developed a website called Your Future Home

Your Future Home

When it comes to sustainability, design, thermal comfort and material choice can have a significant impact on the health benefits of an environmentally friendly home. However, sustainability is still being treated as an add-on instead of being brought to the core of building design.

Enter Your Future Home. This website guides the community in the right direction by providing the keys to a truly sustainable home and has been developed in a way that is both informative and, easy to read and navigate.

Your Future Home can be used as the first step guide when preparing to renovate or build a home. It breaks down the five keys to success of a sustainable building, describes how to choose environmentally friendly materials and includes a virtual tour of a truly sustainable home.

Your Future Home would not have been possible without the support of its major sponsors Boral, CSR and Kingspan. These companies are leading by example and are committed to increasing the awareness of sustainable homes.
