Smarter Homes Smarter Living Community

Raising awareness, supporting community action and building the capacity of groups helps us transition the broader community to a low carbon future.

We encourage Geelong residents to live a more sustainable, low-carbon life by:

  • building and retrofitting to create more energy efficient homes
  • encouraging an understanding of behaviour changes required to minimise environmental footprints using One Planet Living Principles.

The Smarter Homes, Smarter Living program offers: 

  • information via the Smarter Homes, Smarter Living Information Booklet and Smarter Homes Smarter Living website, including helpful videos.
  • support for and partnering with community events such as Sustainable House Day and sustainable living activities
  • support for an Environmental Sustainable Design trial across the region, to encourage developers of commercial and medium density residential projects to aim for better environmental outcomes.
