A council committed to climate action

From outer Melbourne to Yarra Valley and the Dandenong Ranges, Yarra Ranges Council manages offices, libraries, childcare centres, aquatic facilities and other community services. 

In August 2020, the Council endorsed the Liveable Climate Plan – an action plan detailing how it will respond to the threat of climate change. 

The Liveable Climate Plan outlines how the Council will work with the community to support a thriving and climate-resilient community and improve community connection throughout Yarra Ranges.
