Civic Trust Awards & Brickbats Program

The Australian Civic Trust Incorporated was created in 1969 as the Civic Trust of South Australia after a public meeting of over 300 community leaders from South Australia, Victoria and NSW to address the problems of urban blight and poor development.  As a proudly independent and voluntary association, the Trust coordinates responses to community appreciations and concerns through panels comprised of community representatives, leaders and experts to encourage higher standards in the civic environment. The annual Awards & Brickbats program has since developed into an invaluable public forum for constructive public discussion and debate and was extended in 2012 to include Risks and Opportunities.

The categories are intended to be flexible according to the nominator’s requirements but generally include areas commonly associated with the public environment, including natural and social elements, water, energy, etc. As the potential list can be extensive, nominators are welcome to suggest their own category if they wish, which is taken as a guide. Existing categories include: Social, Environmental and Built Environment.
