Congratulations to Macarthur Centre for Sustainable Living

Congratulations to the Macarthur Centre for Sustainable Living (MCSL) for achieving Advanced Ecotourism Certification for their self and guided tours, workshops and community centre.

Situated at Mount Annan, NSW, the Macarthur Centre for Sustainable Living is a fantastic not-for-profit, community-driven organisation supported by local Macarthur Councils and the Royal Botanic Gardens & Domain Trust. They are essentially an educational facility focused on sustainable technology. The Centre aims to celebrate Macarthur’s cultural diversity and explore sustainable living options with activities such as tours, festivals, markets, workshops, research, art, food, gardening and music. These activities favour cultural diversity and have a strong commitment to improve peoples’ awareness about sustainable living options.

The centre promotes sustainable living options, such as water and energy efficiency, waste avoidance and green space management, through its community educational programs and tours. The facility is entirely self-sufficient as it generates its own power (solar energy), recycles and reuses rain and waste water. An organic garden also belongs to the Centre and showcases different sustainable gardening principles, proudly maintained by volunteers. It conducts community educational programs and projects that build social capacity and empower individuals to embrace sustainable lifestyles. The Centre has also instated a Sustainability Committee to advise and monitor programs and educational material.
