Sally Capp AO
Lord Mayor Of Melbourne

The City of Melbourne returns in 2024 as the Festival’s proud Principal Partner. We celebrate this highly valued partnership and the tremendous support to help foster sustainability in our community.


“We can all play a part in creating a more sustainable community through sharing ideas and working towards better habits.

The National Sustainability Festival has led the way in empowering communities of every size for 25 years and the City of Melbourne is a proud long-term supporter. As an organisation we encourage all Melburnians to embrace sustainable living. From planning more sustainable buildings to reducing landfill and improving our biodiversity, our city is responding to the changing climate.

As individuals too, we can take practical steps to ensure sustainable living is within our reach.

Congratulations to the organisers of the Festival and I invite everyone to enjoy this lively showcase of sustainability.”

– Sally Capp AO, Lord Mayor Of Melbourne
