Our Bright Green Future News

The state of our natural environment impacts greatly on almost every aspect of our daily lives. The environment is not just trees and animals; it is the very air we breathe, the water we drink, our weather, the buildings we live in and much more.

Our vision is for the City of Greater Dandenong to be one of the most sustainable cities in Australia by 2030.
