Sustainable Villages Expo

Sustainable Villages Expo

May 10, 2018 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Murdoch University, 90 South St, Murdoch WA 6150, Australia

Sustainable Villages Expo – To Grow Support for the Tiny House Movement. Organising around enthusiasms. Promoting alternatives. Providing Real Options.

This EXPO connects exhibitors with people concerned about three key housing issues:
1. Affordability,
2. Accessibility and
3. Sustainability

Australia is experiencing the “BIGGEST housing BUBBLE in history” and currently has the 3rd most expensive housing in the World (after Monaco and Switzerland). Worse still, energy consumption is high, costly and projected to be increasingly unreliable and unsustainable.

The EXPO promotes multi-scalar solutions, focused on living in smaller housing communities planned in harmony with nature to: (a) improve lifestyles, (b) enhance livelihoods and (c) ramp-up restoration of the Earth’s life support system (biosphere).

Join the Passive House expert Daniel live: find out what you need to do to live in a healthy and comfortable home in Western Australia.

This event will be an introduction into the impact of the indoor environment on health and comfort. Why do we need to change our building practice and where are we in the development of high-performance housing? Furthermore, the holistic “Passive House” concept will be explained in an understandable way, by describing the five main “Passive House” components in detail. The major findings of the thesis: “Passive House design for Perth, Western Australia” will be shown and discussed.
