Earth Hour
Earth Hour
Earth Hour is the single, largest, symbolic mass participation event in the world. Born out of a  hope  that we could mobilise people to take action on climate change, Earth Hour now inspires a global  community of millions of people in 7,001 cities and towns across 152 countries and  territories to switch lights off for an hour as a massive show of concern for the environment.



National Water Week

National water week is on the third week of October each year. This year the Australian Water Association is celebrating its 20th year of National Water Week!

National Water Week provides an opportunity to remind ourselves and teach others that water must be used wisely if there is to be enough to meet the needs of our future generations. While the week is dedicated to encouraging communities to take action to protect our vital water sources, it's also a celebration of innovation and water achievements that have and will contribute to Australia's sustainable future and economic prosperity.

From the 19th to the 25th of October Council is calling on residents to assess their household water consumption and think of ways to reduce their usage such as fixing any leaking taps.
