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 is seeking submissions in the form of a short video, artwork or invention.
Entries for the Sustainability Awards open on Monday 8 February, 9am and will close on Friday 30 April, 5pm.
For more information about submission formats please see below.
- Resident or student (tertiary) in Greater Dandenong
- Student (Primary)
- Student (Secondary)
- Employee or Business in Greater Dandenong
Please note that you can only enter your video, artwork or invention in one category (for example, you can’t enter the same video twice if you are a student and also live in Greater Dandenong).
However, you may enter different submissions under different categories (for example, a video as a student and an invention as a resident).
You may enter as an individual, team or group, however, please note the prize packs are single prize packs and aren’t per individual in the team or group.
How to Enter
Please submit your entries via the form below by Friday 30 April, 5pm.
Submissions will be available online for public voting during Forever Fest (22 – 30 May). This voting period will decide our people’s choice award and after the festival. Submissions will also be judged by our external Sustainability Advisory Committee to determine the final winners per category.
