World Environment Day (WED) on Saturday 5 June 2021 is the official international day of environmental awareness and action started in 1974 by the United Nations. Its focus is to Reimagine, Recreate, Restore. Ever since its creation, the UN has emphasised that WED should be seen as the people's day for doing something to take care of the Earth. Australia regularly participates in WED with events like clean-up campaigns, tree-planting drives and trail walks organised all over the country.

World Ocean Day is a global movement to protect at least 30% of our blue planet by 2030; for a healthy ocean is a critical part of the solution to the climate crisis. With your help and that of hundreds of other organisations worldwide, it is hoped this global movement will grow and determine the health of our blue planet and the security of future generations for decades to come.

A FREE event, celebrate Redland City Council's on Saturday 5 June 2021 from 9am to 2pm AEST at IndigiScapes Centre, 17 Runnymede Rd, Capalaba. REGISTER to secure your spot at this wonderful event at IndigiScapes Environment and Education Centre and Native Botanic Gardens and Nursery.


Fun, free and family-friendly, meet Ranger Stacey and a few of her wild friends. Engage with local community, environmental, organic gardening, wildlife and marine organisations. Council health and environmental teams will also be available for you to learn more about environmental and disaster management planning initiatives in our community. You'll also meet the Koala Detection Dogs, and the team who work behind the scenes to bring virtual wildlife ambassador, Kylie Griffith to life, with more to see in the Theatrette.

A fully loaded day, the native nursery will be open for all of your plant advice and sales. Wander through the Gift shop and Discovery Centre to learn more about our natural environment and ways to experience a more sustainable lifestyle and care for our planet. Upon entry, be part of the plastic-free ocean solution by bringing one small bag, or piece of soft plastic from home to recycle at the marine sculpture. Start the day right at IndigiCafe for breakfast or lunch on the deck. A good way to wind down after a day of local sustainable market stalls, fresh produce, delicious food, coffee, vegan food that includes really delish vegan donuts, cakes and slices. The IndigiScapes Eco Markets continue on past event day and you'll find them operating on Sat 4 Sep and Sat 4 Dec 2021. Follow the link given for stallholder expressions of interest and other details.


Participate in a suitcase rummage and rack sale where you'll find clothes, shoes, handbags, accessories and more, waiting to find a new home. On average in Australia we each consume 27kgs of clothing and textiles every year and most of this goes to landfill. Now is the time to shop sustainably and your bank account will thank you for it. There's so much fun to be had in upcycling, recycling and repurposing, making everything old, new again, while helping out our planet.

Fear not, kids do not miss out on this family-friendly day. They get to enjoy outdoor play with Sparky Do Dah, Nature Art and Craft and Face painting. First Five Forever will be there for the kids to enjoy their fun and interactive literacy program and storytelling. Live music, speakers, entertainment and food in the gardens and on the main stage throughout the day rounds it all off nicely. Event parking is located via Runnymede Road, and you'll find more parking located on Lyndon Road and Korawal Street, where you can enjoy a short bushwalk to the venue. Cycle, or catch public transport; visit TRANSLink to plan your trip. So as not to miss out on a thing and to stay in touch with updates of this event, sign up at Redland City Council.


If after a full day, you're still loaded with energy, you could attend another of Redland City Council 's events, the Collectorville Fair at Cleveland Showrounds on Sunday 6 June. Follow the link for details and head to Council's Facebook event page for many more interesting events like the GreazeFest upcoming end of July, or the Brisbane Tiny Homes Expo in August and Caravan, Camping and Boating Expo in September and more.
