Looking for a fun day out that helps save the environment? Then get along to the Caldera Environment Centre’s annual World Environment Day Festival on Sunday 4 June.

Steve Harris the CEO from ENOVA, the community owned electricity retailer, will be speaking and answering questions about the industry. With close to 2,500 customers ENOVA is the industry leader in offering 12 cents per Kilowatt hour. You will be able to find out what new plans they are working on to support local energy generation.

Connecting people to nature is the theme for the UN world environment day and it invites you to think about how we are part of nature and how intimately we depend on it.

Andrew Price and Kacey Clifford from the Tyalgum Energy Project are bringing two alternative electric bikes for people to look at and Greg Reid from Tweed CAN (Tweed Climate Action Now) will provide the latest information about solar generation.

There will be informative hands on workshops provided by Tweed Shire Council, a kids space and the Hoopla Kids circus. Music from Taraf Tambal, a Balkan Gypsy band, and local bands Monkey and The Fish and Broadfoot, plus The Pitts Family Circus, whose newest one-year-old addition to the troupe, has already been part of several performances, when in the right mood!

Get along to Knox Park, Murwillumbah from 10am-3pm Sunday 4 June, weather permitting, for a great environmentally friendly family day.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
