Sustainable Queenstown is an impact initiative formed in 2018 to identify systemic gaps/problems within our environment and community, and to seek out like-minded partners in order to co-create solutions.



Sustainable Queenstown has various positive social and environmental impacts; building community, reducing food and plastic waste and making businesses more sustainable.



We live in a time where we need to challenge the status quo! Sustainable Queenstown is here to supercharge our community’s capabilities, connections and confidence to co-create a new future.
