About Us

Who are we?
We are residents of South Hobart who work in the community to promote sustainability and strengthen community spirit.
We recognize that transitioning to a sustainable way of life is one of the key challenges of the 21st century.
We want to work together and share what we learn along the way.
We feel that the most effective change at the moment can happen at the community level, and that the future will bring greater reliance on local resources and local people.

How will we achieve our aims?
Embrace appropriate technology to communicate, power our homes, live well and grow our food.
Treat South Hobart as an experimental model of sustainability.
Excite friends and family to roll up their sleeves and help out.
Reconnect with each other to strengthen South Hobart community spirit.
Learn from community groups with similar aims.

We are an incorporated body and have a facilitator group that meets regularly to discuss existing and new projects. Beyond that we are anyone and everyone who wants to undertake an activity in South Hobart to build community spirit and encourage sustainability. 

The facilitator group has 3 office bearers (Communications Coordinator, Financial Officer and Public Officer/Secretary), and other interested members. Membership of the overall group is based on our email list.  If you would like to be a member of the South Hobart Sustainable Community, please add your name into the google group box on our homepage. If you are interested in contributing to the SHSC Facilitator group please contact secretary@southhobart.org
