Venues & Tours
A beautiful space for meetings, workshops and events
The Sustainability Institute is located in the Lynedoch Eco-village, a place where we have provided development facilitation to create a space for sustainable living and learning. Accommodation and venue hire is available for visiting groups and organisations. We have a range of meeting spaces, lecture halls and outdoor venues for any event, ranging from a small meeting to a large conference. Our Farm2Fork catering programme uses local and organic ingredients where possible, and can tailor a menu for your event. Accommodation is available on site in our eco-lodge at the heart of the Eco-village, and tours can also be arranged.
Our focus is on food systems, social innovation, optimal resource flows and transformative learning from birth. The Lynedoch Eco-village is pioneering approached to creating socially diverse ecological communities. It is an emerging ecologically designed, socially mixed community from diverse racial and social economic groups built around a learning precinct, and this unique experience has generated insights into what it means to build up from below the foundations for a more sustainable world. The village is a financially and economically viable community requiring no external funding to sustain itself. It is a working example of a liveable ecologically designed urban system that challenges the notion that sustainable development and ecological building is too expensive.
Various types of tours can be done for school groups, students, workshops, conferences or as a unique learning experience. Please contact us for price packages and options. We invite you to come and learn more!
A range of facilities are available to hire for events, workshops and other meetings. Venue-hire includes the usage of a data projector, whiteboard and flipchart. Fruit and water will be served in the rooms.
