Noosa Environmental Education Hub

A world-class environmental education hub delivering curriculum extension opportunities related to the Noosa Biosphere Reserve.

The Noosa Environmental Education Hub (Noosa EEHub) has a vision to become a world-class environmental education hub delivering curriculum extension opportunities that provide connection between the Noosa Biosphere Reserve and community.

The Hub will offer rolling-term programs that immerse young people and their school communities in Noosa Biosphere Reserve education linked to the Australian Curriculum. Localised programs are practical ensuring students are not only learning theoretical information about the Noosa Biosphere but physically engage in the natural biosphere, exploring and theorising about the state of our environment. Students are provided with opportunities to deliver grassroots projects to restore the biodiversity within their communities through community-based partnerships and empower our young people to have a voice and take action on issues of importance to their local environs.

Funding for this project allows Noosa EEHub to develop the centre’s capacity while piloting programs with local schools within the Noosa Biosphere Reserve.
