Our Convenor Kerry Echberg is the 2018 “Local Hero”. The Local Hero award recognizes the achievements of an individual who has contributed significantly to sustainability.
As a member of Yarra Climate Action Now (YCAN), over the last nine years Kerry has volunteered her time, energy and passion to bring about action on climate change. Whether writing submissions to Council; speaking at government hearings, such as the East-West Link panel; or chanting slogans and waving banners at rallies, Kerry’s efforts go far beyond YCAN. Her selfless dedication to establishing a safe climate for all deserves recognition.
Congratulations to the other winners and thanks to City of Yarra for showcasing so many positive contributions to sustainability.
Kerry couldn’t be at the awards night, but Gwyneth, Sarah, Adeline, Kevin and Carole were there to celebrate on her behalf.
