NWEC Spring Gathering and Annual General Meeting Sat 17 September


It’s time again for our Annual General Meeting and Spring Gathering, to be held at 235 Ironcliffe Road, Penguin.

The AGM will commence at 10am on Saturday 17 September, followed by a delicious lunch of freshly cooked pizzas from our wood-fired pizza oven, along with salads, sweets and hot or cold drinks.

You must be a current member to nominate or vote for the committee. However, if your membership is not current, you may pay before the AGM and this payment will carry you through until the end of 2017. Fees are unchanged and remain as follows:

Single membership – waged $10, unwaged $5

Family membership – waged $15, unwaged $10

Please consider whether you would like to be a part of the decision-making body for your North West Environment Centre. We are planning a new format for next year’s festival, with a new venue and a wider range of stalls and activities. We are also undergoing a process of rejuvenation at the Community Garden; a new project is providing up to 50 raised garden beds made from repurposed fruit crates, with wheelchair access between each row.

For those who are members of CENTs, fees may be paid in half CENTs and half cash, and members paying for 5 years in advance attract a 20% discount.

A chance to have your say on Water in Australia



Is water only a topic you think about during drought? What are some alternative sources of water available to us?

The Australian Water Association and Arup have partnered to undertake a national survey of attitudes of both industry and community towards water, to ensure that Australia has a sustainable water future. Share your thoughts in the Australian Water Survey.

For many Australians water is only a topic thought or talked about during a drought or a flood. It’s usually something only brought up in conversation when water is contaminated or supply is low.

Water is something we use every single day for many aspects of our lives, so why don’t we think about the importance of it more often? How confident can we be that all Australians will have water security in the future? How confident are you that the government will ensure water security for all Australians in the future?

The Australian Water Association and Arup have partnered to undertake a national survey of
attitudes towards water to ensure that Australia has a sustainable water future. The information provided will assist in driving policy and engaging communities to help make sure water is readily available and protected.

Help us by spreading the word about the Survey to your friends, family, communities, contacts and networks – the broader the audience, the better the data!

The information collected from the Survey will be collated into a final report to be released in
October 2016, and will include dedicated water industry and community sections as well as a
comparison between the two groups’ views.

The Survey is open to all Australians and is an opportunity to have your voice heard – visit
