Sustain Northern Rivers (SNR) started in 2008, through 10 peak regional organisations coming together as signatories to the Northern Rivers Climate Change Collaboration Agreement (NR3CA). These partner organisations committed to communicate, consult and collaborate for action on climate change. This alliance has grown and is now known as the SNR Collaboration.
The Sustain Northern Rivers Collaboration knows that the way we network is the stuff of change. It’s how we get things done. When we work in networks, we can come up with new ways of doing things that we would not have thought of alone.
And most importantly, it’s through working together that we’ll learn to take care of the natural world so that our grandchildren have opportunities to grow and flourish in our beautiful, bio-diverse region.
Sustain Northern Rivers is a way of accelerating change to this critically important goal for our communities.
SustainFOOD website launch
Developed under the Northern Rivers Foodlinks Project, the Sustain FOOD website was launched by the Mayor of Lismore City Council, Jenny Dowell
Food is, and will always be, one of the cornerstones of society.
Sustain FOOD is a place where the Northern Rivers community can learn more about growing food, supporting regional growers and producers and sustaining our future food systems.
There is no question, we take energy at the flick of a switch for granted. The ready availability of power creates opportunities beyond belief, but at what cost?
Sustain ENERGY draws a picture of the issues and opportunities for our region in generation, transmission and consumption of stationary energy.
Effective transport keeps people connected, promotes social wellbeing and economic activity. For a sustainable future, we need to use less fossil fuel and more body fuel.
Sustain TRANSPORT will map the route to more sustainable transport solutions for Northern Rivers communities.
