Sustainability Champions

Are you keen on sustainability and making a difference in your neighbourhood?

If you live, work or study in Moonee Valley, our Sustainability Champions program can give you the skills you need to help shape a clean, green and beautiful city.

It's also a great opportunity to connect with other people interested in the environment.

So if you're interested in climate change, community gardening, clean energy, green travel, sharing economy, waterway health, reducing plastics, ecology, upcycling and more, why not take this chance to further your skills and make new friends?
