About SLA

Sustainable Living Armidale is a group of people committed to bringing about the changes needed at the community level to improve resilience in the face of the twin challenges of peak oil and climate change.

Examples of such changes are: increasing local food production, developing businesses that utilise local resources to provide for local needs, reduction of fossil fuel consumption and so on. SLA grew out of the Ideas Into Action Workshops that were part of the inaugural Sustainable Living Expo in 2007. We are affiliated with the worldwide transition movement.

Our Vision

A thriving, proactive, self-reliant, low-carbon community.

Our Mission

To raise awareness of the implications of peak oil and climate change and to inspire and empower our community to build a more self-reliant, resilient future.

Our Values

Sustainable Living Armidale is a non-profit organisation which values:

  • caring for the earth and caring for people
  • empowerment
  • inclusive, participatory and democratic processes, which value the contribution of others
  • optimism and encourages positive change
  • inter-generational equity
  • sharing of knowledge and resources


We seek to actively support our local council in its decision making processes. We have established, via membership, a formal link with Southern New England Landcare.

In 2009, SLA decided to become an incorporated association. We developed a constitution (see Association Information page) and held our inaugural general meeting on Tuesday 4th August 2009. On incorporation we became legally known as Sustainable Living Armidale Inc.
