SUSTAINABILITY

Achieving sustainability is one of the major challenges for the twenty first century. The WA Collaboration is an historic partnership of organisations committed to a just and sustainable Western Australia. The groups involved cover a range of perspectives of the non-government
sector that have recognised the opportunities for positive social, environmental and economic reforms within the sustainability agenda.

Collectively, the groups on the Steering Committee represent thousands of organisations, community groups and organisations and individuals currently working towards a just and sustainable Western Australia.
