Thanks Green Building Council Australia @gbcaus for letting folks know about Clovelly Road Better Block on 27/10

On 27 October 2013 a demonstration event takes place at Clovelly Road in Clovelly, NSW to show how small improvements to local areas can help to make our communities more liveable, safer and greener. Supported by local council, state government, UNSW and local groups, the Clovelly Road event will see the introduction of trees, plants, tables, chairs, art, music, bike and pedestrian infrastructure to create a better environment for residents to enjoy. View the Clovelly Road Better Blocks facebook page to find out how you can get involved. Better Blocks is an idea co-founded by TED presenter Jason Roberts in the USA where 40 Better Blocks have been developed. View the TED presentation. Visit The Better Block website for more info.
