cam·paign /kamˈpeɪn/work in an organised and active way towards a goal

SCEC has been campaigning to protect the natural environment on the Sunshine Coast since 1980 


SCEC works to protect the ecosystems and biodiversity of the region from the negative impacts of urban sprawl, land clearing, climate change, pollution and other issues caused by population growth.

Advocacy and outreach is an important part of what we do. Working with our member groups, we represent tens of thousands of community members and work tirelessly to educate and mobilise people on the biggest issues facing the Sunshine Coast.

The majority of people on the Sunshine Coast live on a narrow strip of land immediately behind the coastline. As the impacts of climate change start to be felt, coastal communities around the globe will have to make difficult decisions about coastal management.

SCEC closely monitors planning issues and development applications that are submitted to council and makes submissions on any applications likely to have a significant impact on the natural environment on the Sunshine Coast. 

It takes a whole community to achieve widespread, long lasting change. SCEC use events as a platform to engage the broader community on sustainability issues, and to inspire ecologically responsible behaviour.
