How to create an environmental legacy from the ‘green’ games: Healthy Land & Water leads the conversation

With the ‘green’ games a less than a decade away, the Committee for Brisbane asked an impressive line-up of thought leaders how SEQ can realise the associated economic, environmental and social opportunities.

It is great to see creating an environmental legacy front and centre, with a punchy piece by Healthy Land & Water CEO Julie McLellan. It was the first time the environment had been made central to the discussions. Ms McLellan used the opportunity to highlight the opportunity the green games provides to create genuine and long lasting change for the environment and liveability of SEQ. She also warned that action stations are needed – and to achieve real change, we need a plan, and we need to start now.

It is also pleasing to see the report leading off with First Nations man and Healthy Land & Water Board Member Cameron Costello talking about creating an inclusive global city without limits.

We are pleased to line up alongside the Committee for Brisbane with their vision to make #SEQ the world’s most #liveable place!
