'Aussie Street' RetroSuburbia with David Holmgren

  • The Clocktower CentreMoonee Ponds, VIC 3039 750 Mount Alexander Road Moonee Ponds, VIC, 3039 Australia (map)

Hear one of Australia’s most engaging and visionary environmental thinkers, David Holmgren, present one of the most empowering ideas of our time. Aussie Street is the history and future of suburbia as a serious but humorous presentation. Over more than a decade this presentation has inspired creative household and neighbourhood responses to climate, energy and economic threats that increasingly cast a pall over the future of suburbia.

Aussie Street is now a short story built into a new book Retrosuburbia; the downshifter’s guide to a resilient future. With the book and the website it has become a positive vision, a set of tools and an expanding network of real people living well now for a resilient future.

Moonee Valley City Council is delivering this event as part of the National Sustainable Living Festival 2019.
