Free Community Café Series kicks off with raw food

The Curtin University Sustainable Policy Institute (CUSP) and City of Fremantle have joined forces to deliver a 10 month, free community sustainability café series.

The fun and informative events are designed to unite the community to learn and share their sustainability issues, ideas and achievements.

The series is based around the One Planet Councils program. The central theme of the One Planet program is that society is currently consuming more natural resources than our planet can cope with. In fact, the average Australian lifestyle requires more than four planets worth of resources to sustain.

So we’re ‘kickin’ it café style’ and inviting our community to join us for a series of seminars on the last Thursday of each month, with engaging speakers from academia, local government and the community. The events will include workshopping and networking opportunities as well as wonderful local food tastings to sweeten the deal.

The series launches on Thursday 28 August from 4.30 pm at Victoria Hall, 179 High St, Fremantle

 

Speakers will include Prof. Peter Newman AO and Prof Dora Marinova from CUSP, and Heath from the Raw Food Kitchen – all giving their perspectives on sustainable food and food philosophy.

Each month we’ll tackle one of the ten One Planet principles, so you can tailor your seminar attendance to your areas of interest. You can come to one, or you can come to all.
