About this event

The Cities Power Partnership’s third annual Climate Awards recognises outstanding council-led initiatives all over Australia and celebrates the exceptional achievements of member councils striving to lower greenhouse gas emissions and embrace clean energy and transport.

The calibre of entries this year was incredible, and double the number from 2019. Join us for a virtual celebratory evening as host Craig Reucassel (from ABC’s Fight for Planet A) announces our finalists and winners for 2020.
