With the event being hosted at the Southern Cross University Gold Coast Campus across from Kirra Beach, it was a natural fit for the GWC to incorporate local education and recreation initiatives with the community. Australian author, Nicole Godwin, launched her award-winning conservation-themed children’s book about a jellyfish who falls in love with a plastic bag, Jelly Boy, at the nearby Currumbin State School on the first day of the conference. Larissa Rose from Glowing Green Australia, who was on the GWC’s sustainability team, organized a ‘High School Youth Leadership Program’ that saw 120 university, primary, and high school students attend the free sustainability mentorship event. The City of Gold Coast hosted yoga and pilates sessions every morning which were supported by the Queensland State Government Department of Sport.
