Green Living Centre

The Green Living Centre is a sustainability initiative of Inner West Council. It started in Newtown in 2003 and has been working with the local community to live more sustainably since then.

The Green Living Centre runs workshops, webinars, events and programs around the Inner West to inspire and support the local community to reduce their environmental impact. The Green Living Centre's experienced staff work with local people and organisations to support sustainable living.

Please contact us for tips and advice on how to live more sustainably – worm farming, composting, energy and water efficiency, food waste avoidance, recycling, natural cleaning, eco-renovation and more.

Events, workshops and programs are promoted through Council's What's On page.


The Green Living Centre runs events throughout the year, including the popular Footprints Ecofestival held at Whites Creek Valley Park in August each year. This year we held Footprints Online on Saturday 29 August, and you can still watch the videos and listen to the podcasts on a range of sustainability topics.
