Think HQ worked with the EPA to communicate its new organisational strategy, ‘Our environment, Our health’, which will deliver better outcomes for Victoria. We created an animated video to communicate the key messages of the strategy, and an interactive microsite to allow EPA team members and the general public to view and understand the new strategy, its goals and how they’ll be delivered upon.
You can view the 'Our environment, Our health' microsite at http://www.epa.vic.gov.au/about-us/our-strategy
We have since worked with the EPA to communicate the importance of checking the water quality before we go swimming - check out our work here.Read More
