Dedicated to greening our streets

Through advocacy, major installations, street planting parties and connecting our growing network. 

  • To make more safe, walkable and cyclable suburbs
  • To cool our city and suburbs
  • To create habitat corridors for wildlife, critters and pollinators (birds and bees)
  • To empower our communities to connect
  • To provide everyday interactions with nature for yourself and your community

Nature strips for climate change focus on supporting street trees and planting native shrubs, grasses and groundcovers for wildlife habitat. (And they’re better for people too.)

  • We create connections between local government, developers, citizens to create greener landscapes
  • We advocate for green streets within Australia and overseas
  • We host festivals of cycling, planting, music, art and education.
  • We host major activations and showcase urban agriculture, virtual reality and technology innovations in green street design.
  • We support others through design advice and link to likeminded groups and events; creating a network of green thumbed folk.
  • Though we are Brisbane based, we are happy to support all Australian cities and citizens in their green mission.

Our Mission: Greener, healthier, liveable streets

Green the Street came out of a desire to see better streets in our city. It began as an activation of over 30 organisations at EKKA 2018, in which we showcased a number of ways that we can Green the Street, from creating lush urban rainforests, to urban agriculture verges to biophilic and biomimetic art streets and street parks – with electric bicycles and everything in between. Since then we have begun verge planting throughout Brisbane. We host regular events, festivals and activations.
