Social Sustainability

The State Government’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Commitments outline key policy initiatives and actions that address environmental and social challenges, with the vision of improving the wellbeing of all South Australians by being smart, sustainable and inclusive.

Affectionately known as the ‘Festival State’, the city is home to the Adelaide Festival, Fringe Festival and Womadelaide, to name a few. It also plays host to a range of events celebrating inclusivity, including the annual Multicultural Festival, featuring 80 community organisations showcasing their rich and diverse cultures.

Adelaide is also renowned for its cultural activity.  The City of Adelaide Cultural Strategy recognises the strong links between culture, economic development, urban planning and environmental sustainability. Its designation as a UNESCO Creative City of Music in 2015 recognised Adelaide’s contribution to national and international creativity, and the destination is filled with a range of culture makers and world class creative industries, both traditional and cutting edge.
