Imagine Durban Project - Sustainable Living Exhibition

Started in 2007, Imagine Durban Project is an initiative of the eThekwini Municipality. The project was started in partnership with Sustainable Cities International (SCI) and Sustainable International Network (SIN).

Imagine Durban Project, in partnership with SCI and SIN, is hosting the Sustainable Living Exhibition from 30 August to 1 September 2012 in Durban.

This event is undertaken as part of the second phase of Imagine Durban Project which focuses on facilitating actions that advance the strategic goals of eThekwini Long-Term Development Plan.


Hosting of Sustainable Living Exhibition is premised on the fact that there are many initiatives being implemented by various organisations and individuals which contribute towards sustainable development and livelihoods within the Municipality; however they are not well profiled so as to inspire action by masses within the Municipality. Sustainable Living Exhibition aimed at showcasing such sustainability efforts, provide an opportune learning, sharing and networking experience to the broad section of public and inspire action at individual or community level.


The exhibition targets ordinary members of public with a special bias to school since they nurture future leaders. All sectors of the society including individuals, non-profit organisations, schools, government, state owned enterprises and businesses who are implementing initiatives that advance sustainable development are welcome to show case their work in the Exhibition.

All members of the society are welcome to visit the Exhibition and participate in all activities which are planned as part of the Exhibition.

Focus areas

Although the Exhibition seeks to provide a suitable space to share initiatives that advance the strategic goals of eThekwini Long Term Development Plan, there is emphasise on environmental sustainability and the exhibitors can showcase any of their initiatives on the following areas:

  • Energy efficiency and Renewal energy;
  • Waste minimisation and recycling;
  • Water harvesting and conservation;
  • Food gardening;
  • Climate change adaption and mitigation;
  • Biodiversity protection;
  • Green home improvement;
  • Creative arts.


Pre-registration is now open until 30 May 2012 and the confirmation of registration will be closed on 30 June 2012. To download the registration form , click here.


Your initiative has a potential to inspire all sectors of the society, therefore share it with others as an exhibitor and make a contribution.


An exciting programme detailing interesting and inspiring events which will happen during the exhibition will be made available once it is ready.
