Here at the Alternative Technology Association (ATA) we are very excited to open up registrations for open houses on Sustainable House Day 2016 to be held on September 11.
Sustainable House Day is a unique event that provides an opportunity for Australians to visit sustainable homes and see firsthand how to take action. In 2015, more than 17,000 people visited 150 properties across Australia.
Sustainable House Day has had significant impact with many visitors improving their homes afterwards. Results from a post-event survey conducted by Swinburne University as part of the CRC for Low Carbon Living showed that:
- Within a month of the event 31% of attendees had already taken action, including sustainable design and features and appliances in renovations or builds
- 59% of attendees plan to include sustainability in future
- 92% of attendees shared their learning at Sustainable House Day with friends and family.
If you’ve worked hard to make your home sustainable and would like to share your knowledge with others, open it on the day. Go to sustainablehouseday.com
Registrations will close on Monday, August 22.
If you know of someone with an outstanding sustainable home, invite them to register their home to open on Sustainable House Day.
