Helping Melbourne go greenWednesday, 12 June In
Melbourne has become the first city in Australia to launch a comprehensive strategy aimed at increasing green urban space….and Moonee Valley has helped!
We were one of 32 metro councils that collaborated with state government, community organisations and private partners on Living Melbourne- a long term strategy to protect and foster our metropolitan urban forest.
We all know that climate change and droughts will put our urban trees under increasing pressure, so we provided some insights and shared our own urban forest commitments and also heard from others about what they’re doing to protect their own vulnerable green spaces.
Through MV2040- we’re committed to enhancing our tree canopy across Moonee Valley (to 30% by 2040!) and by connecting with other Councils across Melbourne we can help minimise the effects of climate change, enhance flora and fauna right across the city and help protect vulnerable people by providing shade.
Imagine a Melbourne with natural green corridors running throughout? We’re working hard to make that a reality.
