Cappucino Strip Club Jan 2011 L ThomasEcoburbia is a business but we are also a sort of community group imbedded in many different activities in the wider Fremantle community.

We are probably most famous for our low cost month movie nights. Once a month films with a sustainable emphasis are shown. These movies are carefully chosen to show positive things people can do.

Shani established the first Living Smarties group in 2009 - called Freo Living Smarties and Friends. She coordinated an open space conference where over 100 people came to share ideas and their own journey towards sustainability. Ecoburbia now sponsors the Freo Living Smarties group, which continues to meet monthly.

Many visiting sustainability practitioners organise their events through Ecoburbia and stay with us here, meeting our friends and becoming part of our lives for their stay.

Our most recent activities include helping with the establishment of the "West Beacy Bunch", a geographic community of the 340 houses surrounding us in Beaconsfield.

We are often asked to present aspects of our journey to various community groups - from local universities, to schools, churches and our local community centre.

We use a circle of concern, circle of influence and circle of action to decide on the activities we will be involved with. Because we are keen to maintain our focus and energies, the only things we don't participate in are petitions, politics and rallies  . . . . . .there is only so much you can do!
