Nominations are now open for multiple board positions to oversee the direction of Green Adelaide and drive a cooler, greener and wilder capital city.

The Green Adelaide Board is a statutory body led by Professor Chris Daniels. Our board plays a vital role of being an independent and strategic leadership team for Green Adelaide to deliver a more climate-resilient city, from the hills to the sea.

The board oversees Green Adelaide’s work to encourage environmental activities and policies for metropolitan Adelaide through partnerships, investment, education, and on-ground iconic projects.

Professor Daniels said that he encourages experienced or emerging, respected, and passionate leaders with diverse skills and knowledge to apply and be part of the change to create a cooler, greener and wilder city.

“Green Adelaide has been around for nearly 3 years, and we are ready for the next chapter of our business and want knowledgeable, committed and fresh voices around the table to drive successful projects, initiatives and operations,” Professor Daniels said.

“We want diverse voices too – with expertise across not just land and environmental management, but also Aboriginal heritage, governance, engagement, and communications, as well as business, planning, finance, and risk management.

“Being on the board is a fantastic opportunity to be part of the green movement in Adelaide which over the past few years has seen exciting projects launched from Adelaide becoming the world’s second National Park City, to exploring the reintroduction of platypus to the River Torrens / Karrawirra Parri and the development of Adelaide’s first Urban Greening Strategy.

“As a board member you’ll be involved in bringing the community, industry and government into the heart of decision making on environmental management.”
