French for Tuesday is an Australian eco living enterprise that empowers our local community to strengthen our commitment to people and planet by showing that living sustainably doesn’t have to be all or nothing to make realistic change.

The biggest impact we have to living a genuine sustainable lifestyle starts with ourselves and our local community. Which is why French for Tuesday thrives on supporting and encouraging our local network of thinkers and doers.

The French for Tuesday Podcast

Aiming for a late 2023 release, the French for Tuesday podcast is a show featuring stories from the Newcastle community who share their values, strengths and commitment to living sustainably. We can use this new knowledge to enhance our understanding about living sustainably – that it doesn’t have to be all or nothing to make realistic change.

Why a Podcast?

A podcast is another way of reaching out to our community. Newcastle NSW is the largest regional centre in NSW and the seventh largest city in Australia.

We have a lot to offer in Newcastle in relation to living sustainably. Wouldn’t it be fabulous for communities across Australia to reflect and learn from our experiences?!

Why French for Tuesday?

French for Tuesday helps connect the people of Newcastle to businesses, organisations and individuals who share their passion and commitment for living sustainably.

We can only do this together, starting with grassroots change-makers. Read more about Mardi and French for Tuesday here…
