In 2023 the National Sustainable Living Festival is living it up with a huge celebration and showcase of ideas and action for sustainability. As our nation reconnects after a turbulent few years, it’s never been a more important time to accelerate and embrace sustainable living in Australia.


The National Sustainable Living Festival is not just an event, it is a movement of change-makers. Its mission is simple: accelerate the uptake of sustainable living and address the global climate and biodiversity emergencies.

As climate change continues to threaten the security and well-being of people and the planet, the action we take this decade is set to define the fate of our future. To achieve a safe climate we will need to decarbonise as fast as humanly possible. This is the decade to rapidly shift to a zero-emissions Australia. So join in the Festival 2023 program to find out more about how we can create the pathway for decade zero.

With over 100,000 visits every year, the event is the largest sustainability festival in Australia — and not just in numbers, but also in impact. By showcasing cutting-edge solutions to ecological and social challenges, the Festival fosters and provides tools for the change we want to see and the difference we want to make in the world.

Be part of the action — and join the sustainability movement with a month of workshops, talks, demonstrations, artworks, exhibitions, films and live performances.
