Greater Dandenong Council is excited to announce a new look to our annual Sustainability Festival, now re-branded as the 'Forever Fest' - 'Sustainable living for now and the future'.
Forever Fest will run over nine days, with each day focusing on the eight themes of our Climate Emergency Strategy, which was prepared in response to Council’s declaration of a Climate Emergency in January 2020.
With elements to suit all age groups and interests, Forever Fest has something for anyone. Every activity across the nine days is free and accessible through various online platforms.
Make sure you select 'going' on our Facebook event page so you can stay up to date as we unveil the exciting program and share how you can get involved.
Day 4 will be themed around 'Energy and Buildings', one of our eight themes of our Climate Emergency Strategy.
If you happen to be in the City of Melbourne on this day, keep a look-out at the big screen at Federation Square. Forever Fest Day 4 will be streamed live to Fed Square.
