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.

Share a local sustainability story

If you are not interested in the awards but you are working on a sustainability project or know of a resident or local sustainability group worth celebrating - send us an email as we'd love to spread the word across North Sydney. Please email and we'll get in touch soon.
