National Science Week: Building Community in your Street

August 19, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm AWST

In National Science Week 2021, be inspired by local sustainability legends as they demonstrate how to build a community in your street!

About this event

Do you know your neighbours? Do you long for the sense of community in your street that you had as a child? Since the COVID19 pandemic, many of us have come to realise just how important our local neighbourhood is during times of crisis.

To celebrate National Science Week this year, come and discover how much science there is in your community – from composting to gardening to cooking, your neighbourhood is a ready-made community to share knowledge and build resilience through food.

At this workshop, you will hear two inspiring stories about geographic community – the community around where you live. From book exchanges to shared compost systems, street parties to movie nights, you are sure to leave inspired to think about your local area and what you can do it make its bonds stronger.

Suitable for ages 10 years and over. Tea, coffee and snacks will be provided.

Please dress warmly.

This National Science Week project is brought to you by Switch your Thinking, Perth City Farm and the City of Perth and supported by the Australian Government.

*If you require an Auslan interpreter for the workshop, please email mail@switchyourthinking.com


The session will be in the Community Room at Perth City Farm, 1 City Farm Place East Perth. Right next to Claisebrook train station, so public transport is best for you and the planet. If you need to drive there is plenty of paid parking in the Royal St carpark. There is one ACROD bay right in front of Perth City Farm on City Farm Place, and two more in the Royal Street carpark. This venue is wheelchair accessible and features an accessible toilet.
