Manly Environment Centre
In The Heart Of Nature
The Manly Environment Centre (MEC) shopfront started in 1991 as a unique combination of community, Council and local corporate sponsors. It was the first Australian suburban environment centre and is well established as a pro-active organisation dedicated to the health of our local environment.
Each year thousands of overseas visitors, local tourists, day trippers, local residents, students and children visit the MEC shopfront at 41 Belgrave Street, Manly. Staff and volunteers also actively seek out the community to help inspire and lead them towards sustainability by presenting a variety of events, talks and workshops. Most importantly information is provided to people, empowering them to take action and make lifestyle choices which will create positive outcomes for themselves, the wider community (locally and globally) and the environment.
The MEC offers accredited internships and work experience opportunities for a range of overseas, regional and local students in all fields of the environment and administration.
The centre hosts a variety of volunteers with diverse experience, opportunities are available in local field work, administration, marketing, projects, research and events. The centre is always looking for new volunteers to become part of the Manly Environment Centre team. The commitment required depends on the position - this is a fantastic opportunity for people looking for practical experience in the environmental or events industry.
