Anyone who would like to participate in Envirotech Day Gympie 2021 should contact us by phoning 0421607930 or email environtechgympie@gmail.com.

The event in 2021 is building on our experience in 2019 and the planning that went into our event in 2020 which was cancelled due to COVID 19 concerns. Gympie Community Solar Assn., Gympie Regional Council, Gympie Landcare and Gympie Living Magazine are continuing to work together to plan the 2021 Event.  Many of the 40 participants from the cancelled 2020 event have already indicated they will attend in 2021.

Envirotech Day Gympie 2021 will be held on April 17th in Nelson Reserve, Gympie between 9.00 and 3.00.  Planning for the event will ensure compliance with all aspects of the latest State Government COVID 19 Safe Event protocols. 

Envirotech Day Gympie 2021 aims to display technologies that will make our society more sustainable. We want to recognize the critical environmental impacts humanity is making on the planet but also promote the positive impacts technologies can make to rectify this. The event will encompass a wide range of industries and topics, including shifting from fossil fuels for Electricity and Transport, reducing agricultural contributions to green house gas emissions, energy efficient housing, boosting recycling from households and businesses and many more. Amazingly, most of these technologies make a positive impact on business profits as well as providing environmental gains. CCIQ with their ECObiz program will be present to demonstrate this and to encourage other local businesses to participate in their energy and waste reduction program.

 

 

Displays will include:

  • a wide range of electric vehicles present, some available for rides, perhaps even test drives while others will tell the owners story of their vehicles on display,

  • Solar systems, battery storage, perhaps options for joining Virtual Power Plant groups will feature for households and businesses,

  • Sustainable housing design and energy efficient housing,

  • carbon farming and soil sequestration,

  • reduction of agricultural emissions, especially from efficiency gains on farms and livestock,

  • Waste and recycling within the community and businesses

  • food, drinks and water available to keep visitors going.

We will have a take away record of all participants contacts, info and products available for visitors to the event. This will provide a longer term record for those who need to find something of interest as well as a promotion of the participants and supporters of the event.
