  • Easy access to MCSL facilities and expertise, collections, messages and values.
  • An experience that raises awareness of a wide range of sustainable technology and practices in homes, urban precincts and businesses – from the latest and the most sophisticated to the simplest but effective techniques for conserving earth's resources.
  • An experience that engages and delivers satisfaction and empowerment to adopt sustainable living practices.
  • An experience that fosters community interest and ownership of MCSL: the organisation and the Centre.
  • An experience that is worth telling others about; that spreads MCSL's messages, programs and services 'well beyond the Centre boundaries'.
