2003 BANKSIA ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERSHIP IN COMMUNICATION AWARD

 2003 BANKSIA ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERSHIP IN COMMUNICATIONS AWARD

‘Your Home?’ Institute for Sustainable Futures, University of Technology, Sydney, The Australian Greenhouse Office, NSW

Your Home is a comprehensive and highly accessible guide that encourages and supports a mainstream Australian audience to take a more sustainable approach to the design, renovation and operation of their homes. Its objective is to reduce the significant detrimental impact of the Australian housing sector on the natural environment. Your Home consists of two linked parts:

  • Introductory Consumer Guide
  • Technical Manual

The package has been extraordinarily successful since its launch in August 2001, with over 125,000 copies distributed to the general public and 17,000 copies distributed to building industry members. By December 2002 the Your Home website had received over 1 million hits. Your Home has received mainstream media coverage and has been adopted by building industry organisations and tertiary institutions as an integral component of the training they provide.
