Learn more about our history, our vision for the future and the actions we are taking today to deliver meaningful health and wellbeing outcomes for our community.
2018-19 saw the reigns of Healthy Cities Illawarra and Healthy People Illawarra pass over, the development of many government, non-government and community partnerships and the continuation of some excellent initiatives that are embedded in the cultural, social and environmental history of the Illawarra Shoalhaven.
We are excited to formally contribute to the Reconciliation process in our country. Healthy Cities Illawarra was
established in 1987 and has always enjoyed good working relationships with local Aboriginal organisations. We strive to
set a good example and we look forward to publicly and credibly promote our achievements, intentions and historical
relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
Illawarra’s Guide to Sustainable and Healthy Events
Events are beneficial for networking, furthering knowledge, sharing ideas and celebrating communities. However, any gathering of people can have the potential to have an adverse impact on the environment and can easily adopt unhealthy practices. In partnership with Food Fairness Illawarra, we’ve created a guide that shows you how to organise and implement an event that minimises potential negative impact and leaves a beneficial legacy for your host community and all involved.
