Joining the Climate Clever Neighbourhoods pilot project is a fun and engaging way to connect with your local community, while learning new skills to reduce your energy and waste, improve water efficiency and grow your own food.

Taking action on climate change is up to all of us, and there’s no better place to start than in your own home and community.

The Climate Clever Neighbourhoods Project is a first-of-its-kind pilot research project run by the City of Canning, which provides support to community members living in Wilson and Ferndale. Whether you’re a homeowner, renter, living in a house or an apartment, you will be provided with plenty of inspiration, ways to save and opportunities to meet people living nearby, all while reducing your impact on the planet!

Through the project you will be able to track and reduce your energy bills, carbon footprint, waste and water consumption with personalised actions provided through a free subscription to the ClimateClever app. If you’re a green thumb, you’ll be able to connect with other food growers in your area through the Grow it Local network and share food, knowledge and skills with your neighbours.

As part of the pilot project, you will have the opportunity to share your journey during regular dinners, video interviews, and through a Private Climate Clever Neighbourhoods Facebook Group. You will also have access to regular workshops providing tips and actions to reduce your energy usage and waste, increase your water efficiency and grow your own food.

What do you get?
When you sign up you will receive a Welcome Pack with lots of freebies and tips to help you live more sustainably!

The project will run from September 2021-September 2022 and during that time you will have free access to:
  • the Climate Clever Homes app (valued at $30)
  • the Grow it Local program, your local growing community and marketplace
  • practical workshops on a range of sustainability topics
  • a private Climate Clever Neighbourhoods Facebook group where we will share sustainability tips, and you can connect with neighbours and have all your burning sustainability questions answered!
  • a Climate Clever Neighbourhoods newsletter with updates on upcoming events, tips, and stories from your neighbours to keep you inspired!
  • regular community dinners where you can share your stories and food with your neighbours
The project is funded by Lotterywest and is being delivered by the City of Canning in partnership with ClimateClever, Grow it Local, Switch Your Thinking, The Behaviour Change Collaborative and Perth NRM Rewild.
