Off Grid Down Under

New Series on 7two 2021
Ever feel the need to just disconnect? Well, in this revolutionary new series we provide the insights into the lifestyles of those who have done just that.
Power, water, internet and infrastructure are the "grids" upon which society is pegged - the grids through which our social relations are entangled. Off grid is not a state of mind, it’s not about being out of touch without your mobile phone, or simply living in a remote place. Off grid is a lifestyle choice. Co-hosts Jason Kennedy and Michael Del Marco will feature different off grid households throughout the series as they share their experiences, challenges, and innovations.

Fantastic partnership opportunities are available with MCW Productions for Off Grid Down Under in 2021.
Contact MCW Productions here for more information.
