Sustainability Champions

We feel that everyone's a winner when it comes to sustainability projects.

Whether your project is big or small, it takes a champion to spread the word and inspire others.


2022 Sustainability Champions

Each year North Sydney Council honours local people who make a difference in our community and Local Government Area (LGA).

The North Sydney Community Awards are a perfect opportunity to acknowledge some of these unsung heroes. If you know someone who is worthy of an accolade, we encourage you to nominate them or you can nominate youself.

One category of the awards program is Eco Warriors, recognising a person or group who has made an outstanding contribution to the environment. There are hundreds of sustainability champions in North Sydney and this is a fantastic opportunity to highlight their hard work and dedication. 

All nominations are required to be submitted by 10 December and you can find further details and apply here
