It’s time to get your cameras out as today marks World Environment Day and the opening of Council’s Sustainability in Action photo competition.

Water and Environmental Councillor Donna Kirkland said whether you’re fighting food waste, recycling right, using active transport, finding energy efficiencies, being water wise or looking after our local habitat and waterways, this competition is for you.

“The Sustainability in Action photo competition recognises and celebrates how our local households and schools are putting sustainability into action in their everyday lives,” Cr Kirkland said.

“I’m always so impressed by the calibre of entries received in this competition and am excited to open it up to not only schools this year, but also the broader community.

“The addition of the household category will allow us to showcase how simple household habits can make a big difference to our local environment. 

“So, get your cameras out and photograph how your household or school is putting sustainability into action as we celebrate World Environment Day.”
