  2. Who are we Green Renters is a not for profit organisation providing sustainability education, advocacy, information and resources for people living in rental accommodation.

  3. Why renters? • Currently national average of 30% • Inner city can be 70% or more and likely to rise • Up until recently generally overlooked

  4. Challenges for renters • Short term leases • No minimum standards • Share housing • Low income • Small space • May not have a garden • Body corporates • Lack of collective power

  5. Challenges for us • Competing for $$ and hearts • Local vs global • Lack of glamour • Green Fatigue

  6. What we do • Workshops • Participation in community forums and events • Resource archive • Tutorials • Project work • Media coverage

  7. A community of renters

  8. Utilise your tools

  9. Utilise your tools • Give aways (not just green stuff) • Polls • Photos • Opinions

  10. Build through the community • Events and festivals • Publications and media • Facebook • Blogs and twitter

  11. Build through the community
