A crowd of about 7,000 people is tipped to attend the 2012 Sunshine Coast World Environment Day Festival at the University of the Sunshine Coast campus at Sippy Downs on Sunday 3 June.

This annual festival, from 9am to 4pm, has been jointly organised by the Sunshine Coast Environment Council, Sunshine Coast Council, the University of the Sunshine Coast and the Sunshine Coast Institute of TAFE.

It is aimed at encouraging people to live more sustainable lifestyles and will feature a range of workshops, trade displays, a fashion parade of sustainable clothing, and wildlife presentations.

Visitors will be able to learn about renewable energy, reducing food waste, getting the best out of solar panels, sustainable building, re-using organic waste and “green driving” tips. There also will be plenty of food stalls, musical performances and activities for children.

The environmental festival will kick off a very busy week for USC, which is set to host about 13,000 visitors at four major events over five days. The three other events are listed below:
