Imagine a sustainable Yarra where homes are water and energy efficient, and powered by clean renewable energy, where every household and business is composting and recycling, where residents are saying no to using plastic bags and excess packaging, and everyone can grow or has access to locally grown food.
Imagine a carbon neutral municipality, with healthy ecosystems, environmentally friendly buildings, infrastructure, transport and streetscapes.
In this section you can find out about Yarra's environment, its parks and reserves, street trees, water and gardens.
Discover what Council is doing and also what you, your family, workplace and neighbourhood can do to look after our environment and create a sustainable future.
