Live Green, the City of Sydney-funded eco festival, will return to Victoria Park for the second year running, on 17 August.

The event, which provides attendees with a range of practical tips to live a greener life managed to attract over 10,000 people last year and hopes are that it will grow even larger this year.

Lord Mayor Clover Moore said the event was one of the crowning achievements in the City of Sydney’s attempts to promote eco-friendly attitudes.

City of Sydney is very proud of Live Green. We are creating a truly landmark event while helping people to become more environmentally aware and make simple changes that, collectively, can make a big difference to the future of our planet, Moore said.

Live Green this year will feature a range of panel discussions on topics of climate change, green marketing and investment, as well as more hands-on workshops presented by The Watershed.

Fashion and beauty stands will showcase the work of sustainable designers -” including a range of bags that have been produced from old discarded City of Sydney banners. Children will be invited to take part in art classes and there will be a range of organic food and wine on offer for all to enjoy.

Live Green takes place on 17 August at Victoria Park. There will be valet parking for all who arrive by bike.
