    MAYORS MESSAGEWorld Environment Day provides an ideal opportunity for the community to acknowledge the importance of

    the environment and sustainability.

    This year Logan City Councils 2017 World Environment Day calendar delivers the important message of

    taking local action to make a global impact. Children from 18 primary schools across our city created

    posters to reflect this message.

    The competition contained many thought provoking submissions, demonstrating a positive message of

    caring for the environment.

    The posters highlight the value of making small eco changes in our day-to-day actions, behavioural changes

    that start with each other, ourselves, our family, friends and community.

    Living sustainably will create a positive difference, not only to

    our health but also to the natural environments that support

    our planet.

    Mayor Luke Smith

    City of Logan

    COUNCILLOR LISA BRADLEYS MESSAGEThe Local Action, Global Impact message is at the centre of our collective responsibility to

    preserving the worlds environment. It is a message that encourages the community to become

    the owners of change and to live sustainably.

    Changing every day habits can create a large scale change with initiatives such as reducing waste,

    energy usage and use of single use plastics. Appreciating nature engages the senses and creates

    communities. The City of Logan provides an amazing array of natural areas and outdoor spaces to


    The children that participated in this years World Environment Day calendar competition

    interpreted Local Action, Global Impact message in many creative ways. With each poster as

    imaginative as the next, it was hard to choose the finalists.

    The posters in this calendar provide powerful messages on how

    we can change every day actions to make a positive difference

    on a larger scale.
