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!

Myopic Transport Planning Shakes Public Trust

Bad for our health. Bad for Business. TEC has called out the NSW government's record of destroying parks, bushland and recreational areas across NSW by directing major infrastructure funding towards toll roads rather than into sustainable public transport projects. 

Talented Turtles

Would you believe the health of our rivers is seriously threatened by the decline of our freshwater turtle populations? Like all our native species they've evolved as the housekeepers of our ecosystems, and they keep the water fresh and clean.
