In January 2020, the City of Greater Dandenong declared a climate emergency, and have since developed their 2020-30 Climate Emergency Strategy and Action Plan.
The Greater Dandenong Sustainability Awards recognise the community's efforts that help make our community and environment a more sustainable place to live work and play.
The awards identify champions in our community whose achievements can be seen and adopted by others.
For this year's awards, Council was seeking submissions in the form of a short video, artwork or invention.
Entries to the 2021 awards are now closed.
