This is an exciting time in Tasmania. We now produce more renewable electricity than we use, and more and more of us are finding ways to fight climate change and to be environmental leaders: in energy, in reducing waste, and in eliminating carbon from our activities..
Youth voices and schools can lead these efforts in Tasmania, and the Sustainable School Awards Program can help.
Keep Australia Beautiful Tasmania is looking for creative, impactful project ideas ranging from saving resources and improving habitat to ensuring personal and cultural rights are respected.
