Dubbo Sustainable City Expo and Science Festival

Dubbo Regional Council is hosting the annual Dubbo Sustainable City Expo & Science Festival on Saturday 24 August from 10am until 2pm at the Western Plains Cultural Centre (WPCC).

Mayor of the Dubbo Region Ben Shields said the Expo is always a great family day out.

“The Sustainable City Expo & Science Festival is a great day for the whole family. It’s always great to learn more about how we can be more sustainable as a community but also to learn tips to use in our own homes,” Clr Shields said.

Dubbo Regional Council’s Organisational Sustainability Coordinator Catriona Jennings said the 14th annual Expo and science Festival is set to be a fantastic event with over 30 exhibitor displays.

“There will be a range of sustainable living and science exhibits, the King and Queen of Green ‘Say No to Plastics’ Show, and a FREE screening of the film ‘2040’. In fact the FREE screening of the film 2040 is already booked out thanks to the support of the Dubbo Filmmakers who will be running the event on the day,” Ms Jennings said.

A new feature of the event will include a series of workshops and talks for residents with the ability to learn from local experts about edible backyard gardening, saving energy and water, green cleaning, low waste living and more. Residents must register for the workshops on the day and numbers are limited.
