Commuter bicycles, electric bicycles, self-propelled wheels and straw bale houses – are these the answers to a sustainable, eco-friendly future? These are some of the exciting initiatives that will be discussed at the this year’s Green Home and Lifestyle Fair taking place at the Sandton Convention Centre from 28 – 29 July 2012.

Public lectures and workshops will be conducted at the Fair, which will also feature an exhibition showcasing more than 100 eco-initiatives for a sustainable future.

Households and members of the public interested in making an eco-conscience difference are invited to attend lectures aimed at providing interesting and implementable solutions to be more environmentally friendly. These sessions will be presented by energy-, water- and home-waste solution experts.

Opportunities for the youth, in terms of careers and job prospects through the green economy, will also be focussed on during the Fair. “It is important for the youth of our country to be made aware of the exciting opportunities that exist in the industry,” says Gordon Brown, Director of alive2green.

The Green Home Fair forms part of the Sustainability Week, which also features the Green Building Conference, and in-depth Seminars on Sustainable Energy, Sustainable Water, Vision Zero Waste, Sustainable Transport & Mobility and Green Business.

Sustainability Week has been earmarked as the largest gathering of stakeholders to address matters of sustainability under one roof; and combined with the Green Home and Lifestyle Fair, is able to connect further and share more knowledge with the public.
