Geelong Sustainability

We are a dynamic and passionate community group focused on sharing information, building community resilience, advocating for the environment and supporting effective action.
Our mission is to inform, inspire and connect communities to create a sustainable future and to protect our natural environment. Our preferred simple definition of sustainability is enough for all, forever.
