The South Australian Government is focusing its attention on metropolitan Adelaide through increased efforts to green and cool our back yards, streets and neighbourhoods, enhance biodiversity and create open and healthy green spaces for everyone.
Green Adelaide recognises the importance of connecting community to nature and managing our urban environment through an integrated approach - from the hills to the sea. By building on Adelaide's reputation as a cool, clean, green and vibrant city, we will help attract industry, investment, residents and visitors.
The Green Adelaide region encompasses 17 metropolitan councils and approximately 1.3 million South Australians. Green Adelaide is a strategic and influential organisation that drives innovative reform and delivers practical outcomes across seven key priorities.
Its success will be underpinned through strategic leadership, coordination, innovation and partnerships with other organisations and the community to deliver a connected approach to urban natural resource management. It is governed by an expert, skills-based board of 10 people charged with driving this enduring agenda across Adelaide. The board's activities and funding across our seven priority areas will be guided by a five-year regional plan developed in consultation with its community and key stakeholders.
Through partnerships with others, the Green Adelaide board will also leverage additional investment to drive this much needed agenda. This will secure the city's future as a vibrant and liveable city.
The Green Adelaide board will next meet on Wednesday, 22 July 2020 at 1.00 pm in the Noel Lothian Hall, Adelaide Botanic Gardens.
Members of the public wishing to attend should notify the Executive Officer on 8463 3733, as due to COVID-19 restrictions there might be a limit to the number of places available.
