Description

The mission of the North-West Environment Centre is to inspire a new perspective on our relationship with the environment and each other so that we may all act to create a socially harmonious and ecologically sustainable future.

We are based on the north west coast of Tasmania and our projects run across this area.

Mission
"To inspire a new perspective on our relationship with the environment and each
other so that we may all act to create a socially harmonious and ecologically sustainable future.”
The NWEC’s goals are to:
• cultivate a sense of sacred in the ordinary,
• inspire cultural progression towards sustainability,
• support all who embrace social harmony and ecological sustainability,
• to scrutinise, raise awareness of and act upon any process that exhibits poor ethical and/or
environmental standards and practices,
• nurture cooperative processes that empower communities and individuals to achieve positive
environmental change,
• provide accessible environmental education and resources,
• promote a sense of global belonging,
• raise awareness of the need to take urgent action for our environment, a responsibility that we all
share, and
• to strive for a model of operation that embraces diversity and promotes ethical practices and professionalism when conducting business.
