Nillumbik Youth In Action

Are you aged 15-25 and are passionate about the environment? Join Nillumbik Youth In Action to learn skills in environmental advocacy, project management and sustainability. Members of Nillumbik Youth In Action will work together to create an Eco Action Project which will make positive change in the Nillumbik community. These projects could be centred around conservation, climate change, waste or sustainability. 

 Nillumbik Youth In Action will run Tuesday nights in throughout Term 3.

Electronic recycling

If you've got old TVs lying around or a computer monitor that isn’t getting much use, don’t just throw it in the bin. Recycle it. Officeworks run the Bring IT Back program where you can take old electronic devices in store and have them recycled.
