EYE is a group of inspired youth from the Bellingen Shire in New South Wales, Australia, who have a passion for our planet. We aim to strengthen the connections between youth and the natural world, while becoming empowered to lead the way to a more environmentally sustainable future.
EYE youth and mentors work together to provide adventurous and enlightening nature camps and leadershiptraining, are involved in communityprojects – on themes such as street art and local food – and participate in Landcare.
EYE is visioning up an amazing future. Please join us!
