Ethical Decluttering
Get your tickets today before it’s too late!

Come along and discover how easy it is to reduce, reuse, recycle and reward yourself with a simpler life
Whether it is your home or your workplace that needs decluttering you will leave with a better understanding of what your clutter is, and how to responsibly dispose of unwanted stuff
Come along to our evening with Tanya Lewis - The Eco Organiser® and Waste Coach - and discover how easy it is to reduce, reuse, recycle and reward yourself with a simpler life
Tanya’s emphasis is on regaining control over our time and space by using mindful and ethical consumption. Before we buy anything, she challenges us to rethink the following questions: Do I really need it? Will I use it? When I’m finished with it, how can I dispose of it?
Tanya and the Eco Organiser® community has helped divert an estimated 37 000 kg of stuff from landfill, simply by finding good homes for unwanted stuff.
 
Only $20 plus booking fee at:

Spend the next year decluttering and you could be part of the garage sale 2020.

2040
An innovative feature documentary that looks to the future, but is vitally important NOW. Award-winning director Damon Gameau embarks on journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream. Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter.

Watts Next is a school energy education program designed to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions in schools while educating students about energy.

Hands-on, interactive lessons are delivered by a team of energy experts with real industry experience and provide multiple opportunities for STEM-based projects.

Kay Clifford, from Blair Athol North B-7 School, saw the potential of the Watts Next program, and invited Tandem Energy to the school to work with a team of year 6 and 7 students.

"We couldn't be happier with how Tandem has worked in with the children here. They have an innate ability to explain things clearly and their processes and documentation have been great."

Tandem assisted students in analysing the school’s energy data and then invited them to team up to investigate various energy saving opportunities. These investigations were presented back to teachers and other students, as a basis for creating change and developing a school strategy for energy and carbon reduction.

You can learn more about Blair Athol North’s experience in this short video.

The Rockpool

Australia is surrounded by unique natural areas that provide important habitats for our marine life, as well as experiences and rich learning activities for us. There are many resources available to help us understand these environments and how to protect them.

The rock pool connects schools, individuals and communities to information on South Australia’s coastal and marine environments. You can learn about places to visit, access educational resources and more. Visit: www.therockpool.org.au
