Sustainable Futures Festival

Sustainable Futures Festival has evolved from the combination of both the Gympie Landcare Festival and Envirotech Gympie. These were organized by Gympie and District Landcare Group (GDLG) and Gympie and District Sustainability Alliance (GADSA).  Their similar objectives with emphasis on different areas of the sustainability story is what makes the Sustainable Futures Festival a unique local event, incorporating all aspects that make up our wonderful region: environment, community and business.
