Historical WED Festival

Since 1979..

The Sunshine Coast Environment Council (SCEC) and environmental advocates of the Sunshine Coast have been getting together in the first week of June to celebrate World Environment Day.

WED has been celebrated all over the coast, from the first time at Fairhill native nursery, many years by the Maroochy River at Cotton tree, Eumundi Markets and the University of the Sunshine Coast.

The festival has grown into the region’s biggest environmental event and holds the title of the longest running event of its kind in SEQ, maybe even the world. 

The 2012 Festival took out one of five categories in the UNEP WED challenge, giving WED SC international recognition. The 2017 event took out Queensland State Champion at for the Best Charity or Cause Related Event of the Year at the Australian Event Awards and we couldn't be more proud!
