THE annual City of Stirling Living Green Sustainability Awards recognised a range of community nature lovers and green thumbs for services to sustainability.
The awards, held at the Tuart Hill Community Centre, recognised excellence in various categories for individuals, groups, schools and local businesses for sustainable initiatives.
Mayor Giovanni Italiano said the City recognised the need to build a sustainable future for the community.
“In recent years the City has been working to encourage change at a local level with a greater focus on assisting the community to implement sustainable initiatives such as community food gardens, community energy efficiency programs, home energy audits, energy saving workshops and even the provision of grants for sustainability community projects,” he said.
“The calibre of entries was superb with a total of 35 nominations received, 15 of which were recognised on the night in varying categories.
“Many of these people tirelessly volunteer their time and promote sustainability to the community, run and support projects and improve our environment and for that are to be congratulated.”
