Our Motto

Moonee Valley — Let’s Be The Change.

Our Vision

Our vision is for a fair, inclusive, and equitable community that lives healthy, happy, connected lives in a green, biodiverse, climate-safe environment and operates within the means of our living planet.

Our Mission 

Our mission is to constructively engage in and encourage evidence-based action on climate change, sustainable living, community connection and local resilience in Moonee Valley. 

Our Aim

Our aim is to foster a successful, sustainable community that rapidly reduces greenhouse gas emissions, waste, and resource use. Successful sustainable living for us is about growing our food and and making other products we need, to nurture a local, sharing, and circular economy in Moonee Valley.

We Value

Community
Meaningful, inclusive and culturally safe and respectful connections with people and places. 

Action
Constructive, collaborative, and effective solutions for the things we care about.

Care
Compassion and kindness for ourselves, others, all living things, and our planet.
