Confronting barriers to change workshop

What stops us from living sustainably?


What helps us to reduce our footprint?

Most Tasmanians are concerned about their impact in the world. Most want to do something about it…yet not much happens.

How to move forward?

Join us for a lively workshop at 7:30pm Tuesday September 20 at the Channel Living HQ (the old servo) 3399 Channel Highway Woodbridge

RSVP to babsreed@iinet.net.au to book.
