Give good this Christmas

24 November 2022


Christmas is a time of giving – Why not give in an impactful way this festive season?

Coffee for Wildlife

Melburnians consume more than 22 million cups of coffee at home each week, however this can impact biodiversity through the clearing of forests.

Zoos Victoria has partnered with Genovese Coffee to create “Coffee for Wildlife”, a new feel-good brew of shade-grown coffee sourced from Ethiopia, Sumatra and Papua New Guinea. Visit here to find out more and make a purchase.

Tree rescue & repair

Help support the recovery and repair of some of the Yarra Riverkeeper Association (YRKA) planting sites along the Yarra Flats Billabong, which were heavily impacted by the recent floods. The YRKA forecasts around 1000 plants will be lost, with an estimated repair cost of $10,000. All donations are welcome, or if you are a corporate, why not consider matching funding. Donations are being accepted here.

The gift of knowledge

Why not give someone a step up in their career with a professional training course run by Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia (IPWEA)? 2023 is full of courses for engineers, technical officers, coordinators and supervisors!
