An empowered community, actively cultivating long-term environmental well-being.
What drives us
We are passionate about supporting people to mitigate and adapt to climate change and to reduce waste and curtail consumption. We believe all citizens should have equitable access to clean air and water, viable soil, and renewable energy. We know that enhancing biodiversity is critical to a functional urban ecosystem.
Our mission is to build relationships, educate and demonstrate sustainable environmental practice and strengthen people's connection to the natural world.
Our values are: respect for our First Peoples and their cultures; integrity; inclusiveness; reciprocity.
How we do it
At the EcoCentre we use the physical world as our classroom to connect people with their natural world. Each of our programs are tailor-made through a local lens and focus on collaboration and community connectedness.
We work as part of a wide network of individuals, groups and organisations and our collective impact since 1999 has transformed the way Melbourne understands wildlife, waterways and wellbeing in the age of climate change.
