Our programs motivate people to enhance the quality of their local environment through personal initiative and community action.
Our flagship program; Tidy Towns aims to recognise and reward work occuring in towns across Queensland.
Tidy Towns has been adjusted to an accreditation program, to better reflect the comprehensive approach that has been a part of the Tidy Towns ethos for many years.
Cleaner Greener Schools
Our Cleaner Greener Schools program offers accreditation recognition of 1 to 5 stars to primary and secondary school's cleaner and greener credentials, while providing opportunities for students, teachers and communities to build further knowledge, skills and advance attitudes to issues relating to litter, waste and biodiversity.
Queenslanders have for far too long been frustrated by litter in public spaces, damaging the environment and detracting from the amenity and utility of our parks and public spaces.
Adopt-a-Spot supports volunteers to undertake coordinated litter clean-ups and other activities in approved public spaces in their community.
Groups pledge to carry out their activities on a regular basis - at least four times a year, however, many groups conduct more frequent clean-ups or revegetation activities. Adopt-a-Spot groups are encouraged to take 'ownership' of their adopted area, which will result in increased civic pride and a noticeable reduction in litter.
Queensland Youth Environment Council
The Queensland Youth Environment Council (QYEC) is a diverse group of young Queenslanders aged between 12 and 25 years.
We meet regularly to discuss key environmental and sustainability issues (including climate change, water use, renewable energy, waste and biodiversity conservation).
