Listen to what the Lorax has to say: let’s party for World Environment Day 

Monday, May 20, 2024

City of Whittlesea residents are invited to Celebrate World Environment Day in June with a  
Dr. Seuss-style movie night featuring The Lorax.


In celebration of World Environment Day, Council will be screening The Lorax, so get ready to embark on a colourful journey through the fantastical world of Truffula Trees and quirky characters, all while learning crucial lessons about the importance of conservation and protecting our environment. 


City of Whittlesea Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson said the theme of this year's World Environment Day - “Our land. Our future. We are #GenerationRestoration” - aligns well with Council’s commitment to creating a greener community for residents to thrive.


“As part of our Sustainable Environment Strategy, we have a strong focus on supporting the community to value our natural landscapes and biodiversity, and also to act to support nature. I encourage our community to get involved in World Environment Day and activities that support our goal of creating a liveable and sustainable environment for all,” said Lydia. 


Bring your imagination and a sense of wonder as we delve into the magical world of Dr. Seuss and discover the power of speaking for the trees.  


“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not,” said the Lorax. 


Enjoy a night of family-friendly fun, with activities for the kids, food and drink, and prizes. To book your tickets, visit 


When: 6pm - 9pm, Friday 7 June
