The Global Melbourne project ended in 2020. The program was designed to empower multicultural residents and visitors to protect our Bay. Melbourne is diverse and growing. Over 40% of residents are born overseas and the city hosts 2.5 million international visitors annually. The Global Melbourne project engaged with multicultural communities by removing barriers and increasing opportunities to learn about and take action to protect the Bay. We did this in various ways: partnering with hostels and tour operator to encourage eco-active tourism; recruiting culturally diverse youth as Multicultural Bay Ambassadors; and developing multilingual Baykeepers short films to improve accessibility and community engagement.

The EcoCentre acknowledges the Kulin Nations, including the Yalukut Weelam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located. We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Elder members of our multicultural community.
