Greater Western Sydney (GWS) has the third largest economy in Australia, houses people from more than 170 countries and has more Indigenous residents than Victoria or South Australia.
It is a rapidly developing peri-urban area with more people driving to work than anywhere else in Australia. It is the food bowl of Sydney and its waterways and land are under significant pressure from development. The four main sustainability challenges for the region are: transitioning to a low carbon economy; developing sustainable communities; ensuring agricultural sustainability and food security; and conserving biodiversity and river health.
The Vision of this RCE is to establish GWS as a living laboratory of environmental, economic and social sustainability, with collaborative action learning programs, which are relevant, innovative, engaged and have a regional narrative.
