Celebrate Victoria's diverse multicultural traditions and nature connection at the EcoCentre's Culture & Nature Festival 2021! A series of FREE digital events will showcase diverse nature-linked customs and stories through cooking, gardening, environmental stewardship, and multilingual nature experiences from home.
Since 2009, the EcoCentre has established strong links with Elders of the local Aboriginal community to assist in their efforts to achieve social justice and improve the health, education and employment opportunities.
In January of 2013, we released our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), endorsed by the Boon Wurrung Foundation and developed to highlight our commitment to continue to build upon and enhance this exisiting working relationship.
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.
