Sustainability Awareness in Australia

The Pillar Foundation has been joined by Melissa Neighbour, a town planner and sustainability specialist from Sydney, Australia. She mentions how sustainability has impacted her life at an early age by influencing her life decisions such as college major and future jobs. She has seen first hand how a lock of sustainability efforts have negatively affected her own environment. Town planning, Fraser Island and teaching at The University of Sydney are just some of the topics that Melissa dives into. She’s here to explain why it matters and what we can do to improve it.

Andreia, who is from Brazil, joins the Pillar Foundation today. She discusses how sustainability has impacted her life and what she does to incorporate into her career. Since the age of 15, she has been actively working with sustainability efforts to improve our world. She has also worked on sustainability projects regarding farms, fruits and trees.

Intern Testimony

At the Pillar Foundation, I learned how to step outside of my comfort zone and be creative. I have only had a technical background so far, so working on a totally different area in marketing has been very interesting. I have learned how to connect with audiences, share common messages, and build a brand. It has been an amazing experience working with the team, sharing ideas, and bouncing creative ideas off of each other. At Pillar, I have had a tremendous opportunity to grow and let my creativity flourish.
