REthink your lifestyle

Do you dream of living a life more in tune with your values? Do the traditional models of work and consumption leave you feeling unfulfilled? If you're curious about creating a life that's sustainable, intentional, and filled with meaning, then this workshop is for you!

In this session, we'll delve into a variety of alternative lifestyles that are gaining traction around the world. We'll explore concepts like permaculture, where you can learn to design systems that mimic nature. We'll discuss voluntary simplicity and minimalism, helping you slow down, declutter your life and focus on what truly matters.

For those who crave community, we'll explore novel living arrangements like co-housing, intentional communities, and ecovillages. Intrigued by the idea of living off the grid? We'll break down the possibilities and challenges of more self-sufficient living.

Whether you're considering a tiny house on wheels or a vibrant co-living space, this workshop will equip you with the knowledge and resources to explore your options. So, come join us and discover the alternative lifestyle that perfectly reflects your vision of a fulfilling and sustainable future. Remember, a healthier planet and population doesn't require a few people doing things perfectly, it requires loads of people doing things a bit better!

Topics include:

  • permaculture, voluntary simplicity, & minimalist lifestyles
  • tiny house and off-grid living
  • sharing economies and the gift economy
  • intergenerational living and co-housing
  • degrowth and intentional living
  • intentional communities and ecovillages

Who is it for?

This session is for anyone wanting to learn more about alternative ways of living, thinking, and going about their daily lives. It's for those concerned about achieving balance in their life between work, leisure, family and fun.

About the REthink Nillumbik Project

The REthink Nillumbik Project is a series of fun, interactive workshops to create a more sustainable and liveable Nillumbik. Sessions include a range of activities to help local residents reimagine our collective approach to energy and waste.

REthink events are collaborative, hands-on, and can help people take small actions that can lead to serious, positive change. They include practical demonstrations, creative activities, and simple ideas for rethinking everyday choices and behaviours. We want you to leave each session feeling motivated and empowered to make change. By working together, we can create a more sustainable future for ourselves and generations to come!
