The World Environment Day (WED) Festival has been held on the Sunshine Coast each year since 1979, making it one of the longest running environmental events in the world.
Growing out of the grass roots environmental movement of the 1980s the WED festival has been a celebration of and for the environment movement for most of this time.
As environmental issues have become more mainstream and environmental sustainability has become a key issue for business, academia, government and the community, WED organisers have embarked on a journey to turn the festival into an event that is relevant to people from every sector of the community and which draws people from well outside the region.
To celebrate the unique Sunshine Coast natural environment while showcasing initiatives that promote low impact lifestyles. Our goal is for every visitor to walk away thinking “ I had a great day and I never knew that”
To deliver a regionally significant event that is fun and engaging, and attracts over 15,000 people from the Sunshine Coast and the 3 hour drive market.
