Great Green Challenge

The Great Green Challenge

Do you want to take part in Wagga's BIGGEST competition this year?

Are you looking for ideas, inspiration and information to help your household become more sustainable?

The City of Wagga Wagga is looking for 6 households to take part in the Great Green Challenge in 2011!

The Council are looking for residents willing to take part in this competition to make positive changes to our environment, reduce their ecological footprint and share their experiences with the community. You don't need to be a sustainability guru, just keen to try new things over the next 6 months. The 6 households will receive ongoing support from Council and environmental community groups, and get great ideas from a series of community workshops on waste, water, gardening and energy.
