Personalities

We post short overviews of individuals who have contributed to awareness, development or promotion of renewable energy, sustainability, environmental or modern ideas. These Australian individuals have put effort into spreading the word about sustainable living, renewable energy or environmental issues through their actions. No matter how big or small a difference any one of these people has made they are good examples of pro-active people that are working towards an efficient and healthy future for our planet.

If you know someone who should be featured here please drop us a line – there are many people working anonymously behind the scenes to create change in Australia and many of them will go unsung.
