Upcoming Courses

Each year we hold a Community Leaders in Sustainability course for Darebin and Banyule participants.

The next course will start in February 2019. Applications for this course are now closed.

To apply, you must live, work or study in the Cities of Banyule or Darebin.

We encourage applications from small teams to work on a project together. Existing community groups can apply and then run the project within your current community group. If you have another person/s you would like to work with, you will need to put in one application each, and check the box for a team project. We will assess your application both individually and as a team.

I am interested in the next course - what should I do?
