Clean Future Zone
The Clean Future Zone is a place for young and old to have some fun and discover the possibilities of a renewable Nillumbik. Kids can build a wind turbine with LEGO while adults taste the product of cooking on an induction cooktop and find ways to reduce home energy bills. Check out the latest electric vehicles and talk to owners to hear their first hand experiences or marvel at the creative genius of our local artists in producing stunning waste art sculptures. The Clean Future Zone is brought to you by Clean Energy Nillumbik with the support of Nillumbik Shire Council, Bendigo Bank and Eltham Rotary.
