The Bundaberg Region is one of just 16 locations throughout Australia selected to deliver the Green Book project to connect youth with the environment.
The program is funded through the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal and ABC Heywire Youth Innovation grants.
Green Book is about connecting communities, taking environmental action, learning, and making change for a brighter future. It seeks to encourage youth to connect with their local, natural environment and to build and strengthen local communities.
Partnering with schools, youth groups and community organisation, Council will be running a series of environmental projects around the region to help young people gain hands-on experience and knowledge on environmental care.
