HISTORY OF RENEW FEST

HISTORY OF RENEW FEST

Seeded by COREM, Renew Fest in 2016 saw a cross community collaboration that resulted in a wonderful celebration and information sharing festival. COREM’s success in the renewable energy space has established them as a driving force for transitional change across the Northern Rivers community, and in light have expanded their mission to engage with broader climate action topics and aligned organisations.

In 2016 we saw the wonderful success of this festivals inaugural event, exceeding all expectations, with over 2000 attendants and celebrating a history making record with our first mass action of literally next to ZERO waste for the whole festival!

It rose through a collaboration with Byron Shire World Environment Day and strong partnerships with Byron Shire Council, Brunswick Valley Landcare, Santos Organics, Mullum SEED, ENOVA, plus the sponsorship of the Office of Environment and Heritage, Light Touch Solar & Electrical, 100 Go Solar, Mullum Music Festival, North Coast Events, Kombucha Mamma and Opentable. Through forming and forging strong partnerships with Byron Shire Council and thriving organisations dedicated to environmental and social sustainability, COREM intends for Renew Fest to become the change agent for our Shires flourishing sustainable future.

MULLUMBIMBY & THE BYRON SHIRE

MULUMBIMBY & THE BYRON SHIRE

Mullumbimby is located in the Byron Shire on the Far North Coast of NSW. Known for its free thinking attitude and strong environmental focus, it prides itself as a forerunner in the sustainable movement. The main intersection of town, unlike most country towns, presents an iconic health food store, Santos Organics and the surrounding rainforests and hinterland are a site to please any visitor. The residents of Mullumbimby invite you to come and learn, share and get connected with us over this festive weekend. We want to share, strengthen and protect what we have and also learn what we can from the exciting and wonderful people working towards a more sustainable future.

The communities of the Byron Shire are vibrant, highly dynamic, creative, educated, and passionate about sustainability and the pursuit and practice of the necessary changes of our time. Our community as a whole is largely seeking ways to implement sustainable projects with a unified vision, utilising all the wonderful resources and knowledge that resides here. There is a growing desire to find ways to link with and support each other, whilst also opening and facilitating growing community engagement. Renew Fest provides this platform. By celebrating knowledge exchange and the sharing of actions, ideas, inspiration, and fundraising for community, Renew Festival is a powerful change agent, fostering sustainable, collaborative action communities.
