Noosa Mayor Bob Abbot will launch the Living Smart Homes program at 3.30 pm on Friday, June 22nd during Noosa's Excellence in Sustainable Building Design 'Glossies' Awards at The J youth & community centre in Noosa Junction.
Cr Abbot said today that Living Smart Homes has been designed to encourage average householders to do their bit to combat Climate Change, the biggest global challenge of our time.
"Initially a partnership program between the Noosa and Caboolture Shire Councils, Queensland Environmental Protection Agency, Queensland University of Technology and South East Queensland Catchments, the hope is that Living Smart Homes will be so successful it can be expanded across the State," explained Cr Abbot.
"The program empowers people to take action on Climate Change by positively transforming their lifestyles to be more sustainable. Participation in Living Smart Homes is free of charge and saves you money on household costs as well.
"Organisers have taken the hard work out of finding the most successful ways to reduce your impact on Climate Change. All participants have to do is take advantage of this program by joining and making some simple but effective lifestyle changes. This is one of the most important things we can do to provide a safe future for our children."
