Description: The Manly Environment Centre (MEC), Northern Beaches Council, has been operating since 1991. Set up as an action and education based environment centre, our aim is to act as an environmental educator to enable and encourage broad community involvement and goodwill in protecting Northern Beaches’ unique environment. Access to scientists and experts in all fields of the environment and sustainability, enables our Video Conferencing programs to offer lively and informative presentations to students in a range of ages. Sessions cover two of the three cross-curriculum priorities including Sustainability and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures. Sessions are engaging, interactive, adaptive and responsive to the needs of the students.
