Sustainability Taskforce



Expressions of Interest for the 2017 - 2019 Sustainability Taskforce are open from 4 August and 1 September 2017. 

The Sustainability Taskforce is a forum for community members to have input into the design and delivery of Council’s environmental strategies and programs. Volunteer members provide advice and also direct community feedback to Council on local environmental issues. The Taskforce is made up of representatives from across the Hume community – from environment groups, rural land management, business and industry, education and community sectors. 

The Sustainability Taskforce is chaired by Cr Jodi Jackson who holds the Environment Portfolio and meets between four and five times per year. In 2016 - 2017 the Taskforce has provided advice and input to Council for the following programs: 

  • Cleaner Creeks Everybody's Business industrial storm water campaign
  • ESD in the new Splash Aqua Park in Craigieburn
  • Release of the new calicivirus to help control rabbit populations in rural areas
  • Strategic planning and managing growth
  • Landscaping subdivisions and the new Sustainability Park in Mount Ridley

Taskforce members have also heard presentations from the Environmental Justice Community Legal Centre and have had a tour of sites of environmental significance in Hume. The Taskforce provides an invaluable role advising on the Live Green community workshops program.

For more information and to discuss nomination and meeting dates for 2018, contact Council’s Sustainability Engagement Officer on 9205 2845 or email
