Projects & Advocacy
ATA has a very practical approach to achieving change. It takes the feedback it receives from people active in renewable energy, sustainable building and water conservation, and works to overcome the barriers that prevent or slow down the uptake of sustainable technologies. Some barriers require a change in government policy, others different methods of implementation and some require ongoing education and training to make an impact.
ATA advocates in both the government and industry arena for ease of access and continual improvement of sustainable technologies and practices, as well as the production and promotion of information and products needed to change the way we live.
