About Us

Our Local Whitsunday Climate Change Innovation Hub

Discovering ways to address and reduce the impacts of climate change in our own backyard.

What We Do

The Whitsunday Climate Change Innovation Hub is an initiative of Whitsunday Regional Council and is the only one of it’s kind in the country. Our main focus is to develop innovative, practical solutions to help the Whitsunday region manage the impacts of climate change, both present and future. In doing so, the Hub acts as a think tank to gather and share knowledge with the community to build resilience in our region, and throughout Australia and across the globe.

Our Mission

To build the resilience of the Whitsundays and Communities everywhere to Climate Change.

Why We Do It

  • We are here to lead the discussion on climate change in our region
  • To act as a driver of real-life solutions
  • To facilitate the collaboration needed to build the resilience of the Whitsundays and communities everywhere to climate change

Our Vision

A climate resilient Whitsunday region.

Our Goals

  • Be valuable to the Whitsunday and global community for the services the Hub Provides  
  • Enable our community to be a leader in climate change mitigation 
  • Aid the Whitsunday community to proactively prepare for Climate Change
  • Deliver innovative solutions that are practical, feasible, affordable and can be implemented by our community today
  • Attract the world’s leading climate change practitioners, researchers and solution providers to work within our community

Who We Work With

We are collaboration leaders. The Climate Hub works with Councils, State and Federal Government agencies, research organisations and the community to identify projects that will facilitate change or provide knowledge. 

Our Partners and Supporters

To date, we have been lucky enough to receive grant funding from the Great Barrier Reef Foundation and Commonwealth/State Disaster Recovery Funding for the Far North Queensland and North Queensland Monsoon Trough Flexible Funding Grant.
