The Greening our City Champions program celebrates an individual, group or organisation that has made a contribution to creating a greener future. The program recognises those individuals or groups who have undertaken tree planting and urban greening activities that improve liveability and amenity of Greater Sydney suburbs, enhance residential neighbourhoods, and/or contribute to urban tree canopy and green cover.
The program also celebrates outstanding efforts of local champions who help increase public awareness and encourage participation in urban greening across Greater Sydney.
The inaugural Greening our City Champion is: Total Earth Care
Total Earth Care is our first Greening our City Champion recognised for their valuable contribution to tree planting. Total Earth Care and their clients have organised and completed numerous tree plantings across Greater Sydney, increasing urban tree canopy and green cover. Their tree plantings helped to achieve the Premier’s Priority of planting one million trees in Greater Sydney by the end of 2022.
A key element of the Greening our City program is making urban greening part of the way we do business. The Department looks forward to identifying other individuals, groups and organisations that also support this goal.
Are you a Greening our City champion or know an individual, group or organisation who is? Applications for future champions will open in 2023.
