Buy Nothing New Month
1-31 October
National/International

Buy Nothing New Month is the global movement for collective, conscientious consumption. It's a little idea, that started in Melbourne and is spreading to the Netherlands and USA. In 2011, Sydney Morning Herald ran a poll asking "is Buy Nothing New Month a good idea?" Over 10,000 voted. 82% said “yes”. It's a one month challenge to buy nothing new (with the exception of essentials like food, hygiene and medicines). Buy Nothing New Month isn't Buy Nothing New Never. Nor is it about going without. It's literally about taking one month off to really think, "Do I really need it?" If I do, “can I get it second-hand, borrow it or rent it? What are my alternatives? Can I borrow from a friend? Can I swap with my neighbor?" It's about thinking where our stuff comes from (finite resources) and where it goes when we're done (often landfill) and what are the fantastic alternatives out there to extend the life of our 'stuff'. It's easy. It's fun. It's moving from consumption-driven to community-driven. It's good for us, our wallets and our planet. Hop on board!

1 Sep - 16 Oct
National

Night Stalk is a great way to become involved in community conservation action and to learn about our native animals, their habitat and their threats. It's is easy, fun and something everyone can do. All you need is a torch and a copy of the Spotter’s Log. Choose a night or number of nights between 1 September and 16 October and spotlight in your local forest/bushland. Record all of the mammals, birds, reptiles and frogs that you find and then post, fax or email your Spotter’s Log to Perth Zoo for collating. The information is collated and made available online for interested members of the community. Particularly interesting sightings of species are also sent to conservation agencies. This regular monitoring can help the community realise which species live in the various habitats of Australia and in turn we hope will encourage conservation action to help protect and preserve the important biodiversity that surrounds us.


* Day of Older PersonsDay of Older Persons


Day of Older Persons
1 October
International

Older people – a new power for development. Why a "new power"? A demographic revolution is underway throughout the world. Today, world-wide, there are around 600 million persons aged 60 years and over; this total will double by 2025 and will reach virtually two billion by 2050 - the vast majority of them in the developing world. In Australia, the International Day of Older Persons is celebrated as an opportunity to recognise the contributions older Australians make to their families and communities, and to encourage participation by older people in community activities.

Walk to Work Day
4 October
National

Annual event which helps employers and employees to build regular walking into their daily routine. Sponsored by Bupa. Did you know that people who walk before and during work are generally healthier, more productive and creative and less likely to be absent or on sick-leave? Regular walking can also help to relieve feelings of depression or anxiety. And it improves our environment by reducing car dependency. We are therefore asking all workers to put their Feet First and take part

Buy Nothing New Month
1-31 October
National/International

Buy Nothing New Month is the global movement for collective, conscientious consumption. It's a little idea, that started in Melbourne and is spreading to the Netherlands and USA. In 2011, Sydney Morning Herald ran a poll asking "is Buy Nothing New Month a good idea?" Over 10,000 voted. 82% said “yes”. It's a one month challenge to buy nothing new (with the exception of essentials like food, hygiene and medicines). Buy Nothing New Month isn't Buy Nothing New Never. Nor is it about going without. It's literally about taking one month off to really think, "Do I really need it?" If I do, “can I get it second-hand, borrow it or rent it? What are my alternatives? Can I borrow from a friend? Can I swap with my neighbor?" It's about thinking where our stuff comes from (finite resources) and where it goes when we're done (often landfill) and what are the fantastic alternatives out there to extend the life of our 'stuff'. It's easy. It's fun. It's moving from consumption-driven to community-driven. It's good for us, our wallets and our planet. Hop on board!

Night Stalk is a great way to become involved in community conservation action and to learn about our native animals, their habitat and their threats. It's is easy, fun and something everyone can do. All you need is a torch and a copy of the Spotter’s Log. Choose a night or number of nights between 1 September and 16 October and spotlight in your local forest/bushland. Record all of the mammals, birds, reptiles and frogs that you find and then post, fax or email your Spotter’s Log to Perth Zoo for collating. The information is collated and made available online for interested members of the community. Particularly interesting sightings of species are also sent to conservation agencies. This regular monitoring can help the community realise which species live in the various habitats of Australia and in turn we hope will encourage conservation action to help protect and preserve the important biodiversity that surrounds us.

* HalloweenHalloween


Hallowe'en
31 October
International

Halloween or Hallowe'en (a contraction of "All Hallows' Evening"), also known as All Hallows' Eve, is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on October 31, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows (or All Saints) and the day initiating the triduum of Hallowmas, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers. According to many scholars, All Hallows' Eve is a Christianized feast initially influenced by western European harvest festivals, and festivals of the dead with possible pagan roots, particularly the Celtic Samhain. Other scholars maintain that it originated independently of Samhain and has solely Christian roots

Buy Nothing New Month
1-31 October
National/International

Buy Nothing New Month is the global movement for collective, conscientious consumption. It's a little idea, that started in Melbourne and is spreading to the Netherlands and USA. In 2011, Sydney Morning Herald ran a poll asking "is Buy Nothing New Month a good idea?" Over 10,000 voted. 82% said “yes”. It's a one month challenge to buy nothing new (with the exception of essentials like food, hygiene and medicines). Buy Nothing New Month isn't Buy Nothing New Never. Nor is it about going without. It's literally about taking one month off to really think, "Do I really need it?" If I do, “can I get it second-hand, borrow it or rent it? What are my alternatives? Can I borrow from a friend? Can I swap with my neighbor?" It's about thinking where our stuff comes from (finite resources) and where it goes when we're done (often landfill) and what are the fantastic alternatives out there to extend the life of our 'stuff'. It's easy. It's fun. It's moving from consumption-driven to community-driven. It's good for us, our wallets and our planet. Hop on board!
