The Hub would like to acknowledge Remy Shergill for her skilful management of this project and our Deputy Director, Dr. Ailie Gallant, who was the public facing climate scientist for the columns.

Special thanks also go to our colleagues at science communication company Scientell - Simon Torok, Paul Holper and Alysha Huxley - who collaborated on the project and excel in explaining science to general audiences. We are also grateful to Ironbark Sustainability for the troves of emissions data they have been delivering at local government area level.

Sustainability Victoria CEO Claire Ferres Miles congratulated the Monash Climate Change Communication Research Hub on their achievement, and said the project demonstrates an innovative approach to
driving a more sustainable future.


“The continued year-on-year growth of the Awards reflects optimism and momentum to achieve Victoria’s commitment to transition to a circular and zero net emissions economy to reduce, re-use and recycle,” Ferres Miles said.


“From volunteer groups dedicating countless hours to large businesses taking action, it is inspiring to see the quality of varied and innovative submissions this year.”
