Thank you so much for your interest in being part of Sustainable House Day. Opening your home as part of this event gives you the unique opportunity to share advice, tell your story, and assist others in their journey to live more sustainably.
Requirements for Sustainable House Day 2021 homeowners
Opening your home this year will require you to create a profile detailing your homes sustainability credentials, along with a short video house tour (unless you made one last year). Resources on how to create this video will be available soon, and we will have volunteers who can support you if you need further assistance.
As people explore your profile and watch the tour video, they may have questions for you. To enable this peer-to-peer education, we will require your availability for a two-hour window on 17 October, to answer any questions via the comments section on your profile.
Some homeowners may be invited to participate in online events hosted throughout the month leading up to Sustainable House Day, or on the day itself. We will get in touch if we believe your home would be a good fit for these events.
Community groups will hold in person events on Sustainable House Day. See our Community Partners page to find out how to get in touch with partners in your area — or, if you’d like to organise an event yourself.
How to apply
If you have never opened your home for Sustainable House Day, you can create an account by registering here. You will then have access to our detailed house application form. The form can be saved and edited again later, so it does not need to be completed in one sitting.
If you have previously opened your home for a past Sustainable House Day, you will not need to submit a new application form. Simply fill out this form to indicate your interest in this year’s event. You will always be able to log in to the website and edit your existing house profile at a later date.
If your house is accepted into this year’s event, we will notify you via email as soon as possible.
