Introducing the Sustainability Awards

Celebrating local sustainability champions and environmental initiatives

We want to celebrate those champions in the community who are going above and beyond for the sustainability of the Tweed Shire.

Sustainability means balancing environmental, economic and social impacts to satisfy the needs of the present without affecting future generations’ ability to meet their needs. Read more about Council's Sustainability Program.
