Becoming involved in NQCC activities is a fantastic way to learn more about how we can protect, become educated and celebrate our environment and meet like-minded others. ALL welcome!
Come and meet up with and find out about the work of NQCC at Eco Fiesta, a free event that encourages the community to become more aware of the importance of the environment in our lives.
In addition to NQCC, there will be a wide range of exhibitors and live entertainment. The event will provide you with ideas, advice and inspiration!
Take the opportunity to become a member and/or a volunteer for NQCC and learn about our wins, our campaigns and our up-coming events, because, as the Founder of Earth Day, Gaylord Nelson, said:
'The economy is a wholly owned subsidiary of the environment, not the other way round'
Eco Fiesta is a family friendly, smoke and alcohol free event. ATM onsite.
Come and check out NQCC at the 2018 Palm Creek Festival taking place over four nights and three days of 7-10 June. In addition to NQCC, the Festival will feature more than 100 performers and events with music concerts, dances, workshops, acoustic jams, youth festival, art and craft workshops, and special events. The Festival features the cream of local performers and selected national special guests. Be sure to bring your fancy dress for Sunday night’s Festival Parade. The theme for 2018 is RAINBOWS.
Please join NQCC for their June 12, 6pm fundraiser - BREATH. Based on the novel by Tim Winton, the movie follows two teenage boys, hungry for discovery who form an unlikely friendship with a mysterious older adventurer who pushes them to take risks that will have a lasting and profound impact on their lives.
Live music, nibbles and drinks at 6pm, for movie start at 6:30 pm.

Shhhh! Under wraps ... but get ready for the announcement of a big event starting 1 July!
A New Economy for North Queensland symposium will bring together people keen to explore (or already exploring) new, more sustainable ways of doing things in areas such as food and energy, work, production and consumption, social enterprise, the built environment, income distribution and population. It will be an opportunity to look outside the box, to creatively question traditional ways of doing things, and to explore new options for a fair, flourishing and sustainable region.
Our goal is clear: Communities and economies that fit within the productive capacity of a healthy environment.
Join us for a thought-provoking and direction-shifting weekend on beautiful Magnetic Island.
Call for proposals open to 4 May. Final program distributed 30 May. Bookings open 30 May.
