This coming Wednesday (November 9) Aucklanders have the chance to see for themselves the Kiwi businesses, government, community and non-profits that are out blazing the trail towards a sustainable future. It’s all part of the Sustainable Business Network’s Sustainable City Showcase 2011, sponsored by ATEED (Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development).
The event represents a huge collaborative effort and practical demonstration of what a sustainable city will look and feel like, given the creative solutions already provided by New Zealanders today.
Visitors will follow a journey through various zones — from the home to the shop, the workplace to outside space. There’s over 120 exhibitors signed up o the event, so it’s going to be a biggie. And the exhibitors are diverse, showcasing everything from electric vehicles to eco-tourism, ethical fashion to natural burials.
November 9th kicks off with a Conscious Commuter Challenge on the Waterfront, featuring an array of sustainable and ethically minded breakfast foods and a chance to network with like-minded business people. A range of demonstrations highlighting sustainability – including composting, healthy living, sustainable food and cooking, green transport and more – will be happening throughout the day.
Rounding off the showcase will be a Green Drinks networking evening.
When: Free public open day on 9th November
Where: Shed 10, Queens Wharf, Auckland
