World Environment Day celebrates education and awareness

Lismore City Council hosts an annual celebration event with local primary schools to mark World Environment Day in June.

The event is held at the Lismore Recycling & Recovery Centre and gives the students an opportunity to participate in a range of activities with an environmental focus. These hands-on activities are run by organisations throughout the region including Rous County Council, Dorroughby Environmental Education Centre, North East Waste, Southern Cross University, Friends of the Lismore Rainforest Botanic Gardens, Friends of the Koala, Northern Rivers Waste and Lismore City Council.

The partnerships formed with other organisations enables us to focus on a diverse range of environmental issues including water conservation, waste management, biodiversity, energy and exploring our natural environment.
