Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) has entered into a new community partnership with the Yarra Riverkeeper Association (YRA).

As part of the Platypus Partnership, MCEC and YRA will work together to create stronger community connections and build a sustainable future for the Yarra/Birrarung river which runs past the venue. The partnership will also provide opportunities for MCEC employees to take part in learning and engagement with the Association.

The Yarra Riverkeeper Association is a not-for-profit, community-based organisation that works closely with local communities, Traditional Owners, government, and other stakeholders to advocate for the health of the Yarra/Birrarung. They work with Traditional Owners to re-energise the river ecologically and culturally, bringing back biodiversity and health.

This agreement extends MCEC’s goal of supporting the environment and the community by partnering with leading not-for-profit organisations across sustainability, health and housing.

MCEC already has existing partnerships with OzHarvest, the Good Friday Appeal, Variety – the Children’s Charity, Launch Housing, Starlight Children’s Foundation, and the Banksia Foundation.
