As a parent and member of our local community, I take seriously the role we all have as custodians of our environment. It is important we do all we can to secure a better future for our families and our nation. This includes action to address climate change and protect Australia’s wonderful natural assets.
Locally I have supported a number of environmental initiatives including:
- Delivering $900,000 in greening and revegetation programs throughout Kooyong including at Chandler Reserve, Willsmere Park, Yarra Flats, Fairview Park, South Surrey Park, Koonung Creek Reserve, Winfield Park, Maranoa Gardens, Beckett Park and throughout the Yarra River and Koonung Creek corridors.
- Helping local community organisations become energy sustainable with grants for solar panels.
- Committing $2 million to protect and restore the Yarra River including $500,000 for the Yarra Riverkeeper.
