When you hear “EcoCentre building” the new, world-leadership sustainability-rated, Net Zero, spacious and beautiful community centre probably springs to mind. This is with good reason: community has keenly watched the timber structure rise into place over the past few months. We’re all very excited about launching the redeveloped EcoCentre in 2024. (And no – despite the oddly persistent rumour – it will NOT house a bar!)
However, building is both a noun and a verb.
Building a shared vision, knowledge, capacity, datasets, confidence, community, skills, or building a new generation of leaders… Let’s explore some progress scenes from both meanings of EcoCentre building.
Whether building knowledge, netwoks, capacity, courage or community hubs — we are all architects of the future.
At last week’s Annual General Meeting – a wonderful celebration of environmental action (past, present and planned) we released our latest Annual Report. Read more about the nearly 14,000 program participants and 89,506 service users accessing EcoCentre resources, offers, media and content. There were 18,670 environmental volunteer hours contributed by 3,441 volunteers.
We partnered with over 313 organisations including 147 schools.
Together we learn, act, teach, innovate and change.
