In 2012, the Eco Living project including the Eco Living Education Trailer, a mobile and interactive display of what can be done in your own home to make it more sustainable, was launched.
The trailer will initially focus on touring the rural townships of the Rural City of Wangaratta to provide access to sustainability information. The Eco Living Trailer associates with the Eco Living Centre (HP Barr Reserve Community Centre, Wangaratta).
