BIEPA reminds you that World Environment Day is returning to the Maroochydore Rotary Park at Cotton Tree. 10am – 5pm Sunday 2nd June!! This event is hosted by the Sunshine Coast Environment Council (SCEC) and BIEPA will have a stall again this year, spreading the word about Bribie Island’s internationally protected Fauna and Flora Sanctuary – the Jewel of Moreton Bay Marine Park.
Come and visit us and enjoy this amazing day where over 100 community groups, food vendors (delicious & healthy), musicians, exhibitors, including demonstrations of the latest in renewable energy technology; electric cars; permaculture; tiny house design; etc.
Celebrate and take action for our local environment. World Environment Day is the United Nations day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action to protect our valuable environmental infrastructure and assets.
Since World Environment Day began in 1974, the event has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 100 countries. Each year the day is centred around a theme, this year’s theme is air pollution. Unfortunately, 91% of people live in places where air quality falls below World Health Organisation limits and 90 out of 193 countries do not have vehicle emission standards. World Environment Day is a global day for people to take action. There are many small steps we can take that collectively can have a big difference, learn more here:
