Autumn Newsletter Editorial

Our Autumn Newsletter came out this week. The winter edition will be available online, with hard copy sent to our supporters. Here's TEC Director Jeff Angel's Autumn editorial about the quality of life we cherish in our city - is enough being done to protect it or are we losing the very natural assets that make Sydney such a beautiful place to live, work and bring up a family?

Aussie Wildlife Crisis

Our native wildlife are about to become refugees in their own country as new land clearing laws unleash a wave of tree chopping across NSW. The homes of millions of endangered animals will be razed. But we have six weeks to Say No! #standup4nature

Green Spaces Champion

MP Jo Haylen stood up in Parliament last week to decry the lack of green space in her Summer Hill electorate - "no parks, no places to play!" She commended TEC's SOS Green Spaces map - so today we dropped in to discuss it with her. #nswpol#sosgreenspaces


We get around! This week it was Parliament House with Greens MPs keen to discuss our SOS Green Spaces campaign. This cortisol driven city needs every green breathing space it already has and will need many more in the future. 

Park Being Poisoned

SAVE BRESSINGTON PARK! RALLY TODAY at 3pm. Without community consent Strathfield Council has commenced poisoning the grass on 8 hectares of sporting fields and open green space to be razed for commercial development. #sosgreenspaces

Tune In This Afternoon

TUNE IN EVERY MONDAY AFTERNOON! This week Oz Harvest's Ronni Kahn talked about her innovative new rescued food market on TEC's weekly green radio program on 89.7fm. TEC's director Jeff Angel also discussed Malcom Turnbull's big headache - the Adani mine!

Trees Boost Property Prices

Trees can boost your home's value by tens of thousands of dollars, according to new research.  It's another reason why we need TEC's SOS Green Spaces campaign.  Sign the Petition


A rare glimpse of TEC at work - every day we toil behind the scenes to push for policy enlightenment on behalf of our trees, resources and wild life. But we usually can't take a photo of meetings like these!

Stop the Carnage

A massive wave of tree clearing is threatening the future of our koalas, and other wildlife right now, because of new land clearing laws passed by the NSW Government. But together we can ACT NOW to tell Premier Berejiklian this must stop - or koalas will continue to die. We've created a letter you can send her....

The Trees Are Listening!

Even without using a "brain", new research indicates that plant intelligence rivals that of humans. (And let's face it we don't use ours as much as we should). On Monday Drive this week we chatted with Dr Monica Gagliano, about how plants don't like noise pollution anymore than we do. 

The Power of Green Spaces

You can get that holiday feeling any time if you have access to a green space. We collected some facts about the practical gifts of verdant sanctuaries, and selected some TEC staff favourites from the Easter Break.

Decarbonise Or Perish

Parts of Australia will become unliveable in our lifetime, unless the Australian government fully embraces renewable energy and we decarbonise our energy supply, said leading scientists this week. TEC has been arguing the same point for years!
