Living Smart

Local people learning how to live lightly

Join our upcoming Living Smart course to meet other city locals interested in living lighter on the planet, learn new skills and make sustainable changes.

The seven week course is a unique journey that brings people together to learn from and support each other, helping to create networks of like-minded locals.

Course topics include: living simply, waste, water, gardening for biodiversity, gardening for food, energy, healthy you, healthy home, transport and community.

A skilled facilitator adapts the content of each topic, based on the needs of each group and the expertise within the group.

By the end of the course, participants are energised, inspired and ready for the next step, whether that’s small changes in their own home or embarking on a community project.

What participants have said about the course

Living Smart have worked with the cities of Onkaparinga, Holdfast Bay, Marion and Unley to trial Living Smart in Adelaide.

Here's what previous participants shared about the course:

This course inspires you to do better. It gives you things to think about, but more importantly, it is full of information and ideas. I valued group discussions because we could always help and motivate each other. Nothing was impossible and the future is full of possibilities.Onkaparinga

It has something for everyone. It is a non-intimidating, engaging, fun and insightful way of increasing your awareness to some very big issues. Yet, instead of walking away with a sense of doom and gloom, you feel uplifted and encouraged to make changes – with the support of brilliant facilitators and participants. Glenelg

It changed all aspects of my life. I can’t un-know what I know now. [I can take] small steps forward with a team around [me]. It has been amazing how many people I have met that share a common goal – just by sharing what I have been up to on a Tuesday night.Unley
