Guide to EcoCentres

The 'Travellers' Guide' to EcoCentres - Building and growing places for reconnecting people to the environment

Travellers Guide to EcoCentres

The Guide was developed by a team made up of researchers, evaluators and practitioners from three established ecocentres in Melbourne, Victoria.

We used the metaphor of a traveller’s guide for the book to reinforce the notion that the development of an ecocentre is a journey in which you will discover new and better ways of seeing the world, new ways of doing things and many delights along the way. Just as travelling has its highs and lows, the journey of an ecocentre can also have challenges – crises, disappointments, issues and problems. This Guide provides tips and suggestions for how to either avoid or overcome these hazards. Enjoy the journey.

Boon Wurrung Foundation Logo The EcoCentre acknowledges the Kulin Nations, including the Yalukut Weelam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located. We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Elder members of our multicultural community.
