The City of Kwinana has received a Commendable Award in the category of Climate Change at the 2019 Local Government Policy Awards on Thursday 8 August 2019.
The awards recognise Local Governments for their positive influence on legislation, policy and services that promote the health and wellbeing of children and young people.
City of Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams said that the award was specifically in support of a recent campaign called 'Beyond the Plastic'.
"Beyond the Plastic was a City-wide initiative featuring a number of projects that were presented in partnership with communities and the City of Kwinana," said Mayor Adams.
"Central to this initiative was the showcase of artworks created by local primary school children with the assistance of environmental artist Calvin Chee," she said
"The project provided a positive and creative platform for children to gain a greater understanding of plastic waste and its impact on marine environments" she said.
