A far more positive day at the Sustainable Living Festival. First off I fell in love…. with a bicycle!!!! A bamboo bicycle to be specific, hand made in Melbourne from Australian grown bamboo by Cognitive Cycles. It just looks beautiful, the polished natural frame, contrasting with the other machined components.
I spent much of the rest of the day handing out the sexy leaflets we produced encouraging people to join their local climate action group. We had a very positive response and met up with some inspiring people.
The final session I attended was 100% Renewables hosted by Beyond Zero Emissions focusing on plans to move to zero emission energy generation. Matt Wright’s enthusiasm and passion is infectious and although I have heard the presentation on numerous occasions I was once again captivated. The Zero Carbon Australia plan is a fully costed plan to achieve zero emissions for stationary energy in 10 years.
