Canberra Environment Centre
CEC works directly with the community to ensure a better environment for the ACT through targeted education, information and practical application. We recognise that a healthy and vibrant community is much more able to take care of itself and its environment than a fragmented one. Our projects support the community to nourish itself and the environment together, and to sustain themselves into the future. Our work is underpinned by the Earth Charter.
Come along to our workshops or book the centre for your own environment group or project. Our facilities include a large meeting room and library, smaller meeting room, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. We are on the scenic lake bike path, close to two bus stops and have off-street parking.
