Excellence in the Environment Awards

  • Date:

    11 October 2017

  • Location:

    UTS Aerial Function Centre, Ultimo

  • Recognising outstanding achievements by local government in managing and protecting the environment.

In 1997, Local Government NSW’s predecessor organisation initiated environment awards aimed at the work that councils do on behalf of their communities. This year the Excellence in the Environment Awards celebrate twenty years of inspiration from NSW councils in programs, projects and people across 15 award categories, culminating in two prestigious Local Sustainability Awards: one for overall council performance, and one to recognise the individual achievements of a council staff member or elected councillor in the field of sustainability.

While we celebrate the ‘here and now’ in the 2017 award categories, we will give a short overview of the journey from 1997 to 2017 at the forum held on the morning of the Awards lunch presentation. Adam Spencer, Australian radio presenter, comedian, media personality, author and passionate advocate for sustainability will act as Master of Ceremonies. 

After the awards ceremony, stay on and network and celebrate the winners, past and present.

Nominations are now closed. Finalists will be announced in August 2017.
