living it now is coming

Living it Now! is a sustainable lifestyle festival being organised with the support of Scouting Victoria and the Shire of Yarra Ranges. It is scheduled to take place in Belgrave South on Sunday 8th November 2009 – so pencil this date in your diary now!

Will Ashburner - First Selby Scouts leader, me, Tyler Reeves - Selby Scout, Marcus Deuchar and Christina Reeves, festival organisers.

Organisers are planning for a large scale, high quality, professional one day event anticipated to attract over 5,000 people in its first year, and is set to become our Region’s highlight event.

This Festival has been created as an annual event to celebrate and showcase the unique community of the Dandenong Ranges and our commitment to the environment, to living sustainably, and to creating a better future.

It will be a fun, family-friendly, affordable Festival incorporating a Sustainable Homes Tour, an Exhibition, Conferences, Entertainment and a range of Scouting Activities for young people.

Organisers are seeking Volunteers, Sponsors, Business & Community Group Exhibitors, Conference Presenters and suitable Properties for the Sustainable Homes Tour. If you’d like to find out more visit or come along to one of the festival information meetings.

Organisers are also searching for a large Volunteer Staff of enthusiastic and committed individuals and groups from local service organisations, environment organisations, youth groups, neighbouring Scout troops and other interested parties, who are able to dedicate some time helping with pre-event planning, staffing at the Festival and/or post-event evaluation.

There are myriad opportunities for volunteer support, ranging from providing professional advice and sharing experience and skills right through to joining a committee or managing a Portfolio. There is something for everyone. It’s a great opportunity to get involved.
