Adelaide has become the 4th Australian city to join the Global Destination Sustainability Index (GDS-Index).

Global Destination Sustainability Movement (GDS-Movement) is a pioneering, international change agency that acts to catalyse socio-economic and environmental transformation in cities and regions across the world.
