Ginninderry - Building a Sustainable Community
A decade in the making, Ginninderry is a 6 Star Green Star community near Belconnen in the ACT that is redefining sustainable living.
Hear from Ginninderry Sustainability Manager, Jessica Stewart, on how the community has managed to encompass affordability, nature conservation and environmental urban design to demonstrate global best practice.
Alongside the success of the project, Jessica will delve into some of the major challenges faced along the way.
"Often, people think that sustainability is only about the environment, or saving energy or using less water.
"It is often not thought of as a considered single unit that influences each economic, societal and planning decision.
"Sustainability is a vast and often complex idea to get your head around. I suppose that has been the biggest challenge that I work through daily – how to communicate sometimes complex ideas in a way that is helpful and informative without being overpowering or overly complicated."
Join us as we learn powerful insights into how you can leverage opportunities from our Green Star - Communities rating tool and combat roadblocks along the way.
