City to host Sustainable Living Exhibition
The popular Sustainable Living Exhibition that showcases a greener, climate friendly lifestyle will be taking place from 17 – 19 May this year. Those that are interested in exhibition and showcasing their products should book a space by 30 April. The exhibition aims to educate the public about climate change, inspire them to change habits that could harm the environment and ensure sustainability of our resources.
Exhibitors are invited according to the key themes for the exhibition which include Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Waste Minimisation and Greening, Water Harvesting and Conservation, Health & Wellbeing, Food Security & Greening, Citizen Science, Citizen Activism and Creative Arts.
Besides the exhibition, this year’s event will also include an engagement with eThekwini green indus​try stakeholders on the state of the industry and what support is needed, an introductory training session on the Edge building rating tool with the Green Building Council of South Africa, and an introduction of the South Africa Photovoltaic Industry Association (SAPVIA) and the PV Green Card as side events. The city is also planning an engagement with the private sector on environmental matters, particularly our climate change vision for the Durban and a round table discussion on the Durban-Bremen Ocean Champs programme.
The exhibition is the ideal platform to showcase products and services in the above mentioned sectors as it brings together all sectors in the greening industry under one roof which is great for networking.
“The Exhibition will equip participants and visitors with a high-level understanding of sustainability and provide exposure to some of the best practical approaches to understanding social and environmental pressures, assessing their impacts on communities and organisations, developing systems for responding, and integrating these into their organisation’s operational strategy,” said Chumisa Thengwa, Deputy Head for the Environmental Planning and Climate Protection Department.
She added, “The Sustainable Living Exhibition is hosted in the context of various international and local policies which promote sustainable development and resilient cities that are able to address the adverse impacts of climate change. Durban is an international frontrunner in the fight against climate change and is playing an active role in focusing on climate change response through various projects to mitigate and adapt to the challenges of climate change. The Sustainable Living Exhibition is one of these that calls for all communities to contribute towards this fight.”
