Central Queensland’s largest environmental awareness event, Ecofest is going virtual in 2020 but there are still plenty of ways to become involved from the comfort of your home, office or school.
One change can make a difference #OneChange
Virtual Ecofest 2020 is a week-long event aimed at empowering the Gladstone Region community to not only understand their impact on the environment but also to make changes towards a sustainable life which will safeguard our region's natural resources.
Throughout the week, Council will be teaming with our Ecofest community partners to share workshops, talks, and activities focused on this year's theme - 'Biodiversity'.
This year's theme is especially relevant for the Gladstone Region which is fortunate to be home to a vast array of ecosystems from the Southern Great Barrier Reef, rainforest, wetlands, coastlines and more.
