Promoting sustainability, environmental education and community engagement

The EcoCentre is a key element of the University's Griffith Sciences Group. As part of this group, we promote an encouraging message that the knowledge, existing framework and resources to develop a truly sustainable world already exists.

The building itself acts as our primary education tool, with features that incorporate the key principles of sustainable design.

Our innovative approach to promoting sustainable ways of living and working also involves the development and delivery of public awareness education programs in partnership with industry, government and the community.


We host a range of exciting sustainability events and workshops throughout the year. From leading international environmental advocates to celebrity gardeners and everything in between, we’ve hosted some incredible presenters.
