By running many projects from Community Owned Renewable Energy, The Sustainability Directory, Sustainable House Day we inspire people to be part of the action and get involved in sustainability.
By organising events and publishing balanced sustainability-related information we inform the local community of sustainable practices and showcase innovations.
We connect the community to sustainable products, accredited experts, local service providers and environmental and sustainability-focused organisations.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
Geelong Sustainability acknowledges that we walk upon the traditional lands of First Nations peoples. We pay our respects to them and recognise the continuing gift of their cultures to the life and spirit of Australia. Sovereignty has never been ceded. It always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
