Local people and organisations ‘working together towards a healthy and sustainable future’ is as important as national and international environmental reform. Considering this, it was a pleasure to be invited to our local community’s launch of the Kiamasphere, last Thursday at The Pavillion in Kiama, to support efforts to improve sustainability.

At the launch my friend, Darren Collins, gave a good presentation on the journey his family has taken towards sustainable living. I really admire what Darren’s family are achieving. Darren gets the ‘local networking thing’ and is able to use his blog effectively to assist people to find each other and gain support for their own sustainable journey locally.

Our local schools were the recipients of some of the sustainable living grants and also performed at this launch. The Divas, Kiama Public School’s choir, gave a lovely performance of a well-chosen song, ‘SaltWater’ by Julian Lennon.



  1. Thanks for taking such great photos, Darcy!

    It was a fun morning, and we got to catch up with a lot of sustainability friends, plus meet some new ones like the guys from the Mens’ Shed at Port Kembla.

    I’m excited to see where the Kiamasphere web site goes from here.
