Impact Pathway 7: Living Laboratories

Creating buzz around low carbon living will help generate demand and drive adoption. We’re establishing a number of living laboratories around Australia to help demonstrate the benefits of sustainable living and generate positive narratives for low carbon lifestyles.

These living laboratories are ‘learn by doing’ environments involving local councils, developers, residents and businesses that integrate, test and evaluate low carbon living solutions in-situ. Asking the question “what does a sustainable lifestyle look like?”, we are testing options and ideas for a range of localities featuring alternative climatic conditions, infrastructure provision, dwelling types, household types and socio-demographic profiles.
