Our mission is to influence, educate and inspire our North Queensland community to achieve an ecologically sustainable society.

    With 2020 wrapping up, we'd just like to say a big thank you for being a part of our journey this year.

    Here we have some final updates and actions, followed by a little highlights reel from the year that was. Enjoy!

    P.S. Did you spot us on the ABC News a few weeks ago? The Great Barrier Reef's conservation status is now "critical". We got to tell the nation exactly what we thought about our Government's inaction on climate change. Read the article here

    Green Drinks Jan 2021

    Green Drinks

    Join us for the first Green Drinks of 2021!

    What better way to kick of the year than meeting new people who share your passion for protecting our environment? 

    For the first Green Drinks of the year, we're mixing things up a bit and holding it on the beautiful Magnetic Island! Many of our events are supported by the fantastic mob from the Island, so we thought it was about time we brought Green Drinks to them!

    This month's Green Drinks will be held on a Saturday, to let mainlanders get the most out of their ferry trip, and to ensure as many people can come as possible!

    The venue is Smugglers Wine Bar in Nelly Bay, just a 15-20 minute walk from the ferry terminal. Meet us there anytime from 5pm onwards for food, drinks and lots of socialising! 

    All are welcome to attend, but please do RSVP (including any "plus ones") to help us make an accurate booking for the venue. Hope to see you there!
