Cool Streets - Community Engagement

Cool Streets is an initiative to empower communities to cool the planet, one street at a time.

In 2016, Cred collaborated with Gallagher Studio on a pilot project supported by Blacktown Council. The project was the Joint Winner of the Climate Change Action Award at the Local Government NSW Environment Awards.

Cred has continued to support Gallagher Studio to engage with Blacktown residents around the environmental and economic value of street trees. This includes place based events to inform residents about the benefits of street trees and collect quantitative and qualitative data on street tree preferences, issues and opportunities.
