Greening the West

Greening the West was about enabling sustainable, liveable, healthy communities through urban greening. The initiative was created by a network of non-government organisations and state and local government authorities including City West Water and Parks Victoria.

As part of the project, 16 RMIT students undertook a design studio project to develop landscape proposals for the City West Water treatment plant in Werribee West, located within the Werribee River catchment. Students applied a regenerative landscape approach in their designs for the industrial site, working with other institutional and community stakeholders and taking into account issues of health and wellbeing, environment and the economy.

You can read more about the studio and partnership on the main RMIT News page.
