LiveLighter Spring Eco Fest 2017 has begun in Forrest Place, and there’s an action-packed day ahead.
Until 4pm today, the state’s peak environment body the Conservation Council of WA is hosting its free annual community event, which attracts thousands of visitors every year. This year, the event will also celebrate CCWA’s 50th Anniversary.
CCWA spokesperson Sarah English said, “Western Australians are passionate about our unique wildlife and environment, and are increasingly switching to sustainable lifestyles to help protect it.
“LiveLighter Spring Eco Fest 2017 will support thousands of visitors to celebrate our wildlife and environment, connect with their community, and explore their options for sustainable living.
“LiveLighter Spring Eco Fest 2017 is pleased to provide virtual reality headsets to screen Collisions, the Emmy Award winning virtual reality film made here in WA.
“Other program highlights include dances from the Whadjuk Yorgas and Baldja Moort, music from Charlie Mgee of Formidable Vegetable Sound System, and Amy Wild Adventures’ popular reptile handling.
“Through a wide range of other stalls and workshops, LiveLighter Spring Eco Fest 2017 will promote individual wellbeing, connected communities, and environmental conservation.
“The event will encourage positive mental health and physical wellbeing through educating, connecting, and inspiring people to live healthy, active, and more sustainable lifestyles.”
CCWA acknowledges the generous support of its naming sponsor Healthway, an initiative of the WA Government’s Department of Health, alongside other sponsors Australian Ethical and Ethical Homeloans.
