Join the February Homelessness Street Count

I encourage you to volunteer for the City’s eighth bi-annual Street Count of Rough Sleepers from 1-3am on Tuesday 21 February.

Council relies on volunteers to collect the data that helps monitor homelessness and track progress in getting people off the streets. In February 2011, 418 people were counted sleeping rough.

The City has a training session on 13 February and volunteer manual so you know what to do, but you need to register before 6 February. You can register online or get download and send in the form from the City’s website.

The City of Sydney has a dedicated Homelessness Unit to help address the needs of people experiencing homelessness – and we are Australia’s only local council to do so.

The "Countdown to Paris" timer on stage for our #SydCityTalk gives a sense of the urgency and timeliness of tonight's discussion. Momentum is building toward December's climate summit but there is still a significant gap between stated targets and the reductions we need to avoid the worst effects of climate change. We can and must do more. Use the #SydCityTalk hashtag on Twitter to follow tonight's discussion and ask questions of our panel: Former EU Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard; Shadow Minister for the Environment Mark Butler; Australian Greens Deputy Leader Larissa Waters; and Former Liberal Party Leader John Hewson.

A great day for Sydney with the fantastic Barangaroo Reserve open to the public. Great to see so many people out enjoying the beautiful parklands -- some where more active than others!
