Green living

Our future depends on everyone making an effort to lead more sustainable lifestyles. Australians leave a large environmental footprint per capita, mainly due to the burning of fossil fuels for energy, our high water consumption and generation of waste that goes to landfill.

We organise a range of cool programs and workshops so residents can learn more about living sustainably in the City and share their knowledge with others. Workshop topics include upcycling, biodiversity in your backyard, organic gardening, worm farming, chemical-free homes and growing food in small spaces.

We’re investigating options for a City Farm in Central Sydney to inspire residents to grow their own food, compost, recycle and save water and energy.

Towards 2030, we’re promoting green living to:

  • make Sydney environmentally sustainable
  • help residents use less resources and save money
  • bring people together to share information and knowledge.

Sydney 2030: green, global and connected. Go to the strategic directions.
