100 MORE GREEN ACHIEVEMENTS

Greens Cr. David Risstrom was the first Green elected in Victoria. During his term as Melbourne City Councillor from March 1999 to October 2004 David worked with his community on ways to improve Melbourne. 100 More Green Achievements was created when 100 Green Achievements outgrew its name, mainly as a result of the extra ideas prompted by the success of David's 100 Green Achievements.

These ideas are now being used by Green Councillors across Australia and others to help Green their communities. This page describes 100 More Green Achievements, making a total of 200 Green Achievements. If you think the ideas you see here are good, feel free to promote them in your area. I'd appreciate acknowledgement of where the idea came from, as I try to do for others provide. This page was updated on 14 October 2012.
