Important to any major or career field is Sydney’s commitment to developing a green economy: a green, circular economy creates jobs and ensures a livable city for future generations.  Some action areas to promote this involve supporting communities and businesses in increasing the use of renewable energy, investing in local projects that boost the economy, and advocating to federal and state governments to invest in the green economy as a main generator of jobs in Sydney.  

Sydney is also a great city if you’re looking to get out and explore.  There are so many places to discover in your free time: the Blue Mountains, Bondi beach, and Manly beach are all great for fun day trips or take a train to Gold Coast for some surfing, a winery tour, or a visit to a wildlife sanctuary.  If you’re looking for closer to home activities, check out the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbor Bridge, or the Royal Botanic Garden.  There are also plenty of museums to visit to learn more about the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. H Welcome Orientation Sydney Harbor Spring 2023
