What is the Blue Sky Festival?

The purpose of the Blue Sky Festival is to highlight the importance of sustainability and environmental issues in the Mundaring Hills. The inaugural Festival was a low waste, plastic free event held in March 2018, facilitated by the community group, Mundaring In Transition Inc.

The Themes of the Festival are:

  • WATER
  • WASTE
  • FIRE MITIGATION AND BIODIVERSITY AND RENEWABLE ENERGY
  • CLIMATE CHANGE
  • TRANSPORT
  • BUILT ENVIRONMENT

Over 40 organisations and community groups, who shared the values of the Festival and with a focus on one of the themes, participated in the first year. The Festival will continue to be a free, family orientated, fun event with interactive presentations and workshops for everybody of all ages. It was an outstanding success in 2018, attracting well over 2000 participants.
