Want to learn how to save money on your power bill? Grow a new garden?How to reduce your waste? Clever tips and tricks to make your home more energy efficient? How to get around our great city quicker?

We’re keen to help you become more sustainable in your daily life through participation in the Future Living Skills Programme.

Future Living Skills was developed collaboratively by local government in NZ and is supported by Palmerston North City Council.  It is published by independent charity Sustainable Living Education Trust.

Over the eight week series of interactive workshops, hear from council and community experts on a range of topics, each with their own learning guide (available on the Sustainable Living Education Trust website), and share your own ideas, challenges, and tips.  We can all learn from each other!

The series will be held 5:30 –7:30 pm at the Palmerston North Central City Library. 

The registration fee for the series is $40 (optional)

N.B You are welcome to turn up to the next session by 5:30pm and we can organise payment at that point.  Please use the Mezzanine Floor entrance.

Any questions, please email the coordinator
