Sustainability group an awards finalist
Transition Margaret River has been announced as a finalist for the LandCorp Sustainability Award in the 2017 Western Australian Regional Achievement and Community Awards.
The awards are operated by Awards Australia, which acknowledges individuals, businesses and community groups who make a significant contribution to regional areas.
Transition committee members include Augusta-Margaret River Shire councillors and officers, members of Fair Harvest and Cape-toCape Plastic-Free and Nature Conservation Margaret River. Transition’s Karen Majer said making it to the finals reflected the organisation’s leadership towards a more sustainable and resilient community lifestyle.
“We’ve got an amazing community which loves its environment and is also very socially connected with a high level of volunteerism and action,” she said. “Transition is an idea whose time has come. “It fits so closely with the ethics so many of us have. “One of the big things about Transition, apart from reducing our carbon footprint, the other big part of it is community resilience in the face of the changing world we live in.”
Winners will be announced at the Hyatt Regency Perth on October 20.
