Community services don’t always have the time and resources to explore and implement sustainability measures. This program will provide the support that these organisations need to reduce their impact on the environment.
It is also an opportunity to link in with the broader community to increase their environmental education and to promote relevant behaviour change initiatives.
Seedlings - a program for Early Years Services
Council supports kindergartens and childcare centres to include sustainability education in their curriculum and to reduce their energy use, water use and waste generation.
Seven of the best
Seven community services take part in this program. We are working with these organisations to incorporate sustainability into their operations. Some of the changes we’ve helped them make so far include: adding Green Cones for composting, installing solar panels or energy efficient lighting, and installing a kitchen garden.
Currently, we are delighted to be working with these organisations:
- Salvation Army Crisis Services
- MIND Australia
- Avidity Salon
- Alma Road Community House
- Elwood St Kilda Neighbourhood Learning Centre
- Linden New Art
