A Message from the Lord Mayor of Melbourne

The City of Melbourne is proud to be the Principal Partner of the National Sustainable Living Festival in 2021.

From humble beginning in Alexandra Gardens, the festival has grown over the past two decades into the largest and longest-running sustainability event in Australia.

In the wake of an unprecedented year, there has never been a more important time to reconnect individuals and communities through shared sustainability goals.

The National Sustainable Living Festival is more than just a celebration of all things sustainable; it’s a call to action to remind people across Australia that we can all play a positive role in protecting our environment.

The City of Melbourne recognises that ambitious action on climate change is required, and innovative events such as the National Sustainable Living Festival are important ways to maintain momentum for positive change.

The month-long program includes a huge variety of inspiring events, talks and activations both online and in-person.

I’m delighted the City of Melbourne has supported this dynamic festival since 2001 and hope you find both inspiration and action among its many events.

Sally Capp
Lord Mayor
