Biodiversity can be defined simply as the diversity of living things. It can be measured on a genetic level (diversity of genes within a species); on a species level (number of different species); and at an ecosystem level (number of functioning habitat types of different successional stages and ecological vegetation classes). All three levels of biodiversity are intertwined and must be protected. This Biodiversity Plan provides an overview of Banyule's biodiversity assets and lists actions and indicators to justify, direct and monitor our management of biodiversity within the municipality.

The new 2019-2022 Biodiversity Plan is due to go up for Council endorsement at the 5 August 2109 Council Meeting. If endorsed by Council, the plan will replace the 2014 Biodiversity Plan.

Council values the experiences and insight of children, and is a signatory to the Victorian Child Friendly Cities and Communities Charter. We recognise the need to:

  • increase participation of children in decision making forums
  • create child friendly environments.

Charter principles

  1. Freedom for children to experience environments that consider their needs.
  2. Respect and dignity for children to express their individual opinions, participate in and contribute to decisions about their communities and their wellbeing.
  3. Equitable access to supportive environments and services for children regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion or ability.

Signing up to change

Signing up to the charter in practice means applying the principles in our daily work. This also means our policies, projects, programs and budgets reflect children’s rights.

Responsibility

Across Banyule, our Child, youth and family committee encourage the sector to apply the principles into their practices. To learn from experiences of others in applying the principles, join us as a member of the Child Friendly Cities and Communities Network.
