Calling all green heart enthusiasts …

It will be held from 22- 26 March 2017 in Brisbane. View the fantastic program here.

Welcome to Brisbane, a city that strives to facilitate trade and economic growth, while protecting, sustaining and enhancing the environment, the well-being of our people, and the community. Learn about Brisbane’s sustainability footprint with a friendly local Brisbane Greeter. When you take a closer look at our destination, it is often astounding to find out what can actually be revealed to us … and when this happens … we often feel a little more connected … and sometimes a little more in awe.

Brisbane Greeters are proud supporters of World Science Festival Brisbane 2017. In partnership with World Science Festival Brisbane team and the Brisbane City Council, Brisbane Greeters have developed a rather special ‘South Bank Green Heart’ Greeter Trail experience.

As the first day of the World Science Festival Brisbane 2017 coincides with World Water Day (22 March), the South Bank Green Heart Greeter Trail sees a particular focus on Brisbane’s water story. Event visitors are invited to learn more about the Brisbane River and the South Bank Parklands.
