May 22nd marked the official opening of ‘Sustainable Valley’ – the highly-anticipated sustainable coworking, innovation, and creative workspace in sublime Byron Bay that offers strategy, design, technology, mentoring, incubator and advertising services to its members. “We’re a sustainable creative space that believes in growing the future through ethical innovation, while maintaining integrity to the community.
Sustainability is at the forefront of everything we do and every relationship we make. Creativity is sustainability,” states SV’s forward-thinking founder, Christopher Magick. Sustainable Valley lands in Byron as the first co-working space of its kind – with an unprecedented emphasis on sustainability and the largest offering of desks in the Northern Rivers, including an outdoor boardroom for conferencing under the sun, multiple meeting rooms, private call booths and work stations, and an outdoor break area. The area’s burgeoning number of creative entrepreneurs and businesses welcome the much-needed space as a platform to elevate the growth of sustainable innovation in the area.
Increasingly conscious about how products are being produced and what brands ‘actually stand for,’ SV can guide anyone through a process to achieve a sustainable and conscious approach to their business. Sustainability isn’t just a popular buzzword, but part of a growing necessity that markets are demanding. SV will work with individuals, innovators, entrepreneurs, freelancers, startups, and companies to move towards a more sustainable and ethical model of operation within their business or startup by offering a range of professional services. Such services include sustainable brand strategy, design and production advice, along with access to a sweeping international network of influencers, creatives, mentors, investors, and philanthropists. Workshops, speakers, events, incubator programs, meet-ups, and access to material and production sourcing will connect members to the best people, information, and resources to maximise their potential.
With its innate sharing-oriented constitution and the sharing of space, supplies, and other resources, coworking is the ideal professional model for supporting environmental sustainability. Years of experience in coworking spaces around the globe enabled Sustainable Valley’s founder, Mr. Magick, to combine the best aspects from each space to bring Byron what it’s missing. “I believe the Northern Rivers is fast becoming a new version of Silicon Valley, a national hub of innovation. What makes it the new frontier is that innovation and industry is becoming renowned for its sustainable and ethical approach, hence the name Sustainable Valley.” Sustainability as SV’s guiding philosophy applies to every part of life, including the way you work. Working in the heart of the natural paradise that is Byron Bay, means each day at the office is a unique combination of work and outdoor play. A lunchtime break is a surf at some of the world’s best beaches, a quick dip beneath a waterfall, or an exploration of the rolling green hinterlands that surround the space. Sustainable Valley’s central location in the Arts & Industrial estate means the area’s best businesses are a stone’s throw, including some of the most renowned Australian coffee and local food spots.
With the world increasingly demanding sustainable brands, products, and services, Sustainable Valley steps in as the Northern Rivers premier full creative service, innovation, digital production house, and coworking space that considers the environment and society in all things they create, say, capture, share, and make. Join Sustainable Valley’s growing community of like-minded people who believe the future is only separated from now, by the time it takes for us to design and create it.
