Last chance for regional communities to be recognised for their environmental contribution

Friday 21 June, 2019

Today, on World Environment Day, Parks Victoria is encouraging community members who’re undertaking projects that are dedicated towards improving the environment and human wellbeing in regional and rural areas to apply for its Environmental Sustainability Award in the Victorian Regional Achievement and Community Awards.

Launched in 2002, the Awards are designed to encourage, acknowledge and reward the valuable contributions that individuals, communities and businesses make throughout Victoria.

Applicants for the Environmental Sustainability Award should highlight how their project or initiative contributes to the preservation of the environment and in turn improves the health and wellbeing of local communities.

The successful recipient will be able to describe how the project or initiative is educating or changing community behaviour, particularly with regard to co-benefitting nature and human health.

The full list of award categories, information on how to apply and prize details is available at: Nominations close Wednesday, 3 July 2019.
