What is it?

Get advice and tips from Australia’s leading green architects and experts on energy efficient products, solar, green roofs and more at Speed Date a Sustainability Expert.

The idea for Renew’s speed date events originated as a response to the regular requests Renew receives from homeowners looking for sustainable designers and experts.
