Horizon 21 is an initiative of the South West Victoria industry, Local Government and Deakin University, all united by the common desire to adapt to climate change and create a sustainable future for their community. H21's aim is to grow capability, knowledge and tools in the green economy and sustainability.

H21 will oversee a program of innovative activities to foster the uptake of sustainable practices and technologies in the South West Victoria region. In the long-term, H21 will develop, manage and launch a portfolio of projects that save water and energy, reduce waste and carbon footprint and create 'green' jobs.
