See you at the Wodonga Sustainable Living Fair on Sunday August 5th, 2012

Preparations are under way for the 5th Wodonga Sustainable Living Fair at La Trobe University, Wodonga this coming Sunday. 

Wodonga Institute of TAFE have a stall and will have brochures available on the courses we are currently offering and ones we hope to run in 2013.

Business, Government and the wider community now consider sustainability issues to be an integral part of their operations.  Therefore, there is an increasing demand for employers and employees to actively engage in a low carbon economy.  The courses that Wodonga TAFE are able to offer will enable you to assist your organization to adopt sustainable business practices leading to increased productivity, reduced costs and improved environmental performance.  The skills and knowledge that you will gain will enable you to embed sustainability principles into your everyday work practices and provide you with an additional high-level qualification that will be an asset in your current workplace.

We look forward to seeing you there on Sunday 10am to 2pm.  See flyer for more details

Festive Season Green Guide

The festive season,spanning Christmas, New year and Australia Day, is a time for family, friends, holiday, presents and lots of food! During this busy period Australians travel more, eat more and buy more than at any other time of the years. This also means we havea bigger impact on the environment now than at any other time of the year.

There are lots of simple things you can do to have a fun and a green festive season. Some of them will also save you money. Check out the information in this guide for tips on: recycling at events and parties; giving green gifts; re-using cards and wrapping paper; reducing your water and energy use; and lots more.
