The Habitat Trust Philosophy
As adopted from a paper by G.L. Kesteven in 1968 entitled:
A Policy for Conservationists 1968 – Habitat Thinking
We inherit our habitat
Tomorrow’s habitat is determined today
It is our responsibility to manage change
Our habitat is a source of
- Scientific information and
- Refreshment and renewal
This process clearly encompasses the issues entailed in climate change – for our region, our nation and the quadrant of the earth within which we all live
The Habitat Trust is a not-for-profit foundation that has been researching and facilitating sustainable solutions for Melbourne for the past 25 years.
Located in Altona, with a focus on Melbourne’s growing Western suburbs, facilities and fosters generates projects and concepts that are relevant for all Australian cities. Habitat has always taken a holistic approach to sustainability, integrating community goals with economic and environmental aspirations.
The Trust is managed by an independent Board of industry and academic leaders and is backed by a number of generous supporters and sponsors.
