Moreland City Council has a proud history of leadership on environmental and social issues.
Through our declaration of climate emergency, we acknowledge the scale and speed of transformation needed to change our energy markets, our economy, our legislation, and our lifestyles to eliminate and draw down greenhouse gas emissions.
We are stepping up our engagement and mobilisation of civil society and businesses to grow the movement demanding urgent action. We aim to play our part in moving beyond an incremental approach to transitioning our society.
Our work focuses on three strategic directions:
Energy Transition: Efficient and 100% Renewably Powered Energy
Sustainable Transport: Active or Zero Emissions Transport
Waste and Consumption: Circular Economy with Zero Waste
This year, Moreland City Council is supporting the Festival through sponsorship for its headline event, the National Climate Emergency Summit.
