Envirotube presents the step by step building of the Greenstyle program
In 2017 it is almost a decade since Greenstyle was formed. This film gives a step by step account of mounting a collaborative program run by three local councils in the northern Sydney area – Ku-ring-gai, Hornsby and Willoughby Councils. – from it’s very beginnings to implementation. Interesting for all but particularly for those interested in building a large community program from the ground up.
A lot has changed since the program was implemented nearly ten years ago. Many Australians have embraced solar energy and have installed water tanks. The rebates discussed here have changed too.
Greenstyle is a free service now run at Ku-ring-gai council. Just look it up on the net. Google Greenstyle Ku-ring-gai.
