In August 2019 Council declared a Climate Emergency joining "over 900 jurisdictions worldwide, including 35 Australian councils, [to] declare that we are in a state of emergency that requires immediate action by all levels of government."
You can help do your bit by making simple sustainable choices at home, learning more about the environment and getting inspired. The Council is right there with you, working to deliver the ambitious commitments and aspirations adopted in the Environment and Climate Change Strategy, including a corporate commitment for net zero emissions by 2045.
We have several waste reduction programs including recycling and reducing single use plastic. Our Teacher's Hub also has a heap of information to help you become more sustainable.
Local businesses can join the Sustainability Business Network to share their knowledge and experiences to become more sustainable.
