Under the auspices of Glenn Murcutt AO’s appointment as designer of MPavilion 2019, green magazine presents green moves, (re)makes and grows, a three-day program of events revolving around sustainability, architecture, design and permaculture.

Saturday

Future Materials, 10am–5pm

Come along to see the work of  Melbourne School of Design’s ExLaB, where students are encouraged to reexamine everyday materials and invent new ones. Designers will be on site with examples of their work, including prototypes and finished products as well as footage of their processes. Precious Plastic Monash are part of a global movement which began in 2003. Engineering students have built machines from an open source, they process plastic waste and repurpose the waste material into useful products—come and chat to the team and see their machines in action.

Ross Harding and Joost Bakker in conversation, 6pm–7pm

Join Ross Harding and Joost Bakker for an evening of ideas. Ross Harding, whose organisation Finding Infinity is dedicated transforming our cities from consumers to producers, will discuss how Melbourne can transition to become self-sufficient by 2030 by connecting technology with culture. Joost Bakker, an environmental activist and florist, will discuss the scourge of greenwashing and challenge listeners to reconsider the way we live and the waste we leave behind.

The event will be moderated by Tamsin O’Neill, editor of green magazine.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
