After receiving the honour of winning the Banksia Foundation NSW Sustainability Award last year, Living Seawalls is thrilled to be recognised as a finalist in the biodiversity category of the Banksia Foundation National Sustainability Awards. A joint venture of SIMS, Reef Design Lab, UNSW, and Macquarie University, the program has developed an adaptable and affordable solution for reviving marine life along the tens of thousands of kilometres of concrete coastline.

The Banksia Foundation has earned the reputation as the most prestigious sustainability awards in Australia and longest-running sustainability awards in the world. The National Sustainability Awards seek out and recognise innovation and leadership through the lens of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These global goals aim to unite the world businesses, governments and citizens to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and protect the planet. By embracing the SDGs, they are hoping to raise awareness of these issues and demonstrate how entrants are contributing to addressing them.

Congratulations to the other finalists in our category – Eastern Barred Bandicoot Recovery Team and Wildlife Drones. The 33rd Banksia National Sustainability Awards will present the winners at the Presentation Gala on the 31st of March at the Melbourne Convention and Entertainment Centre. Tickets to attend thi special event – in person or online – are available here.
