We’re an independent, not-for-profit, non-government, community organisation actively involved in a wide range of projects aimed at greening the shire, environmental education, sustainable living and business and protecting against environmental threats.
Sutherland Shire Environment Centre has been working with the community since 1991 and have achieved some very significant gains for the environment in that time.
The objectives of the Sutherland Shire Environment Centre are to:
- act to defend the environment of the Sutherland Shire and associated bio-regions, supporting members, local communities and community organisations in their efforts to protect and improve their local areas
- develop and conduct environmental education initiatives, encouraging change toward environmental sustainability in the Sutherland Shire and its bio-regions.
We are committed to “thinking globally and acting locally”, and are supportive of others in the community – business, council, government, and residents – who are acting positively towards the environment.
We also wish to acknowledge the people of the Dharawal nation as the Traditional Custodians of this Land, and we pay respect to elders – past, present, and emerging. It is our goal to build restorative relations between peoples and the Country we care for.
