Don't forget, Sustainable Cities Awards
Submissions close Friday May 25th.
Since 1994 the Keep Australia Beautiful Sustainable Cities Awards have raised much needed public awareness of the environmental issues affecting metropolitan NSW. They encourage communities to play an active role in creating a sustainable future for their city. Projects that address environmental challenges, improve the standard of living and quality of life in urban areas are all welcome to enter the awards program
Chief Executive Officer, Peter McLean encourages metropolitan councils, community groups, schools and businesses to consider what winning a Keep Australia Beautiful Sustainability Award could do for their projects, and their community.
“Sustainability is a major issue for Australia, and it will play a big part in government regulation in the future. It is vitally important that NSW metropolitan areas act now to establish long term sustainable environmental practices.”
“The Sustainable Cities awards program presents a unique opportunity for councils and community-based groups to proudly showcase their initiatives and to be acknowledged for their efforts in environmental protection and maintenance.” Peter McLean, Chief Executive Officer said.
