Ecofest has been a part of the Gladstone Region for over 15 years. It has received continued support from the community and industry alike. So, what keeps people coming back year after year?
• Sense of pride and achievement gained from contributing positively to the local region’s environment.
• Creates positive local role models through which family and community members demonstrate the
importance of community participation and environmental responsibility.
• Establishes a sense of belonging to the community, and promotes local environmental groups.
• Helps to educate and inform the Gladstone Region community about the environment, and local industry
• A social day where you can spend time with your family, friends and neighbours.
A green event
Gladstone Regional Council aims to reduce the environmental footprint of Ecofest. To achieve this goal, $1000 from each Gold Sponsorship will
be used to fund projects or initiatives within the local community. In 2014 Conservation Volunteers Australia received $2,000 for
additional planting of Australian native trees in the Gladstone Region.
The festival has a unique hands-on and interactive focus, with a range of activities PLUS a variety of environmentally focused stalls and displays featuring the region’s major industry, local businesses and volunteer organisations.
