Helping Gippsland Go Green

Our Regional Sustainable Living Program has been working across the state for the last three years, and in 2009/2010 we consolidated it by working intensively in the Latrobe Valley. We had 435 direct program participants and indirectly reached over 1200 people through participants and community events. Over 90 percent of our participants reported taking action in their homes and communities to live more sustainably, with 500 homes receiving sustainability audits and local people and community enterprises installing 400 retrofits. Not a bad community effort!
