Green Adelaide: managing our urban environment for ecological vibrancy, climate resilience and community wellbeing.

Green Adelaide is a new approach to managing the urban environment of the capital city of South Australia. Adelaide is a city surrounded by parklands and a river, a beautiful coastline and productive rural hinterland. Green Adelaide will be established as a statutory authority to strategically influence coastal management, the condition of urban rivers and wetlands, create green streets and parklands, encourage water-sensitive urban design, engage in nature education and restore native flora and fauna to the urban environment. A Green Adelaide Board will be comprised of innovative and strategic community leaders that can set directions for improving the urban environment and partnering with state and local government, parks agencies, community and industry to deliver key programs and projects. The Board will prepare a 5-year Green Adelaide Plan to indicate where it'll allocate resources collected through a Green Adelaide levy and develop partnerships that result in increased investment in urban sustainability infrastructure.
