Protection of the environment is a shared responsibility of all levels of government and industry, business and the community.
Victorian councils undertake a range of activities in order to protect and enhance their local environment, including climate change adaptation and mitigation, and management of waste, water, native vegetation, and roadside weeds and pests.
We support council environmental activities through policy analysis, advice and advocacy, project support and management, and by building collaborative relationships with other levels of government and key stakeholders.
We also host capacity-building and networking events and topic-based workshops.
We support three local government associations with specific environmental interests: the Association of Bayside Municipalities, Timber Towns Victoria and the National Timber Councils Association.
