Free workshops and other events
Together with our partners, we run regular sustainability, climate action and gardening events, including skills-based workshops and community planting days. Sign up for our Sustainability and Gardening News to stay up to date.
Our 10-week Sustainability Champions program offers training and support to help you create change and deliver local environmental projects.
Local climate advocacy
The scale and urgency of the climate emergency requires policy and systems-level change, not only individual action. You can join others in raising your voice for stronger climate action by getting involved with Glen Eira Climate Action Now and the Climate Action: South-East Melbourne MP Engagement Group
Local community groups
Do you want to join with others to care for our environment? There are a range of active sustainability community groups that welcome new volunteers.
Sustainability in schools and children’s centres
There are a range of educational resources and related assistance available to support local schools to take climate action and embed sustainability into their curriculum and operations.
Plastic free initiatives
Run sustainable events using our plastic free event guide and be inspired by the businesses who reduced and replaced single-use plastic items with reusable or compostable alternatives as part of Plastic Free Elsternwick.
People are more likely to take climate action based on conversations with people they trust. If you would like to host a Climate Conversation in your community, you can register and we will connect you with a trained facilitator to lead the conversation.
Sustainability Advisory Committee
Our Sustainability Advisory Committee is main up of community members who provide advice to Council in relation to the climate emergency, energy, circular economy, water and biodiversity.
