About the Goal
 

This goal aims to make cities and communities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. The world is becoming increasingly urbanized, with many people moving into urban areas, however cities account for about 70% of global carbon emissions and over 60% of resource use. As such it is critical that our cities are sustainable, as this reduces pollution levels, creates shared prosperity and social stability, without harming the environment. 

The better the conditions created in the community, the greater effect on quality of life.

What Neighbourhood Houses & Centres are doing

Neighbourhood Houses and Centres work towards achieving sustainable cities and communities by incorporating sustainable practices into our everyday operations. Many of our state peaks and houses/centres are going paperless, reducing office waste. Additionally, some houses and centres use solar panels to reduce their carbon footprint.
