In 2011, Professor Kate Auty, Victorian Commissioner for Environmental Sustainability, launched the COTA Vic Green Sages Environmental Legacy Statement at Collingwood Children’s Farm.
Senior Victorians are concerned about the environmental legacy that will be left for their grandchildren and future generations. They want to be involved in creating a more environmentally sustainable future, and they want to see all generations working together on this challenge.
The Green Sages Environmental Legacy Statement calls on all political parties and governments to show constructive leadership and action to address these community concerns.
