Sustainable September in the City

For the past eight years, Uniting Church in the City, Ross Memorial West Perth has been running a series of sessions focusing on our environment, to coincide with Sustainable September.

This year, all sessions will commence on Tuesday evenings at 6.00pm, with refreshments available from 5.30pm. Each session will last one hour, with time set aside for questions.

On Tuesday 5 September, David Galloway, from the Curtin University Sustainability Program, will reflect on how thinking around sustainable development has evolved over the past 30 years, and how his understanding of faith has developed and been informed by his work.

On Tuesday 12 September, Felicity McGeorge will talk on the importance of the wetlands.

Tuesday 19 September will see Craig Donohue from CleanNRG, a specialist in energy assessments for buildings, provide information on solar batteries.

And finally on Tuesday 26 September, Bronnie Kemp from Atom Earth and Hydrosoil Enterprises will look at the varieties of soils in our parks and gardens and what could be added to improve our soils.

The Sustainable September program at Uniting Church in the City, Ross Memorial West Perth, will also include a Christian sculptor creating something wonderful in the church’s front courtyard from scraps of junk thrown out in verge collections, as well as a book sale.
