Greening the West ...more green healthy spaces

Greening the West ...more green healthy spaces | Urban Dynamics - Melbourne | Scoop.it

Green spaces create more liveable suburbs, a cleaner environment and contribute to improved community health.

 

As part of City West Water’s Healthy Urban Habitat Strategy, we’re facilitating a Greening the West program to plant more trees and vegetation in the western suburbs of Melbourne.

 

Greening the West will explore how to improve the climate, environment and health status of Melbourne’s west through increasing vegetation and tree canopy cover through its suburbs.

 

All stakeholders such as councils, businesses, our customers, community groups and the Department of Health and many others will collaborate to make a greener west a reality.

 

To ensure the long term viability of the new plantings, CWW will determine the best water solutions which could include recycled water, stormwater harvesting or reclaimed water.

Melbourne Becomes World's Newest Carbon Neutral City | EarthTechling | Urban Dynamics - Melbourne | Scoop.it

The city of Melbourne, Australia, has declared itself a carbon neutral metropolisafter being certified by the Australian Government’s independent carbon offsetting authority Low Carbon Australia. City officials say the certification highlights the hard work being put in to reach the goal of Zero Net Emissions by 2020.

 

Taking an entire city from emitter to carbon neutral in a decade is no easy feat. In order to achieve its goal of Zero Net Emissions by 2020, the City of Melbourne mounted a long-term campaign to change the way it uses energy by creating multiple environmental clean-up initiatives.

 

We’re already one of the world’s most livable cities, our challenge now is to ensure we are one of the world’s most sustainable cities,” said Environment Portfolio Chair Councillor Arron Wood. “As part of our work we’re delivering new waste management solutions, upgrading several of our council buildings by installing efficient heating, cooling and water systems and making improvements to Melbourne Town Hall which will result in significant savings in lighting costs.”
