At Sutherland Shire Environment Centre, we’re working towards a cleaner, healthier and more beautiful environment that benefits us all now and into the future.
We’re actively involved in a wide range of projects aimed at greening the shire, environmental education, sustainable living and business and protecting against environmental threats. You can see more about these projects here.
Sutherland Shire Environment Centre (SSEC) is a totally independent, not-for-profit, non-government, community organisation. We’ve been working with the community since 1991 and have achieved some very significant gains for the environment in that time.
The objectives of the SSEC are:
- to act to defend the environment of the Sutherland Shire and associated bio-regions, by supporting members and local community organisations in their efforts to protect and improve their local areas
- to develop and conduct environmental education initiatives, to encourage behavioural change to achieve a sustainable environment in the Sutherland Shire and its bio-regions.
How we help
The SSEC is able to work with and support individuals and groups interested in working to improve our environment and encourage sustainable living in the following ways:
- Together our members have hundreds of years of campaigning experience and can offer invaluable advice.
- We can provide your community group with the administrative infrastructure you might need to achieve your environmental goals (ABN, bank account, tax deductibility, insurance).
- We can provide help spread your group’s message to the wider community via websites and social media.
- We can provide limited funding for expenses such as meeting room hire, posters, banners.
