Education, Engagement & Reporting

Gardens for Wildlife

Many opportunities exist for everyone in the community and within Council to change daily behaviours that will reduce their impact on the environment.

Education through community workshops, festival stalls and resources such as booklets aim to raise awareness and knowledge in order to help achieve this change.

Reporting is another key element of implementing Council’s commitment to sustainability.

Effective reporting raises the profile and promotes the importance of improving environmental outcomes across the City and enables opportunities for further improvements to be identified.

Council’s vision for education, engagement and reporting is outlined below. Further information can be found in the Environmental Sustainability Strategy 2016-2026 (PDF, 8MB) .
