BECOME A LEADER IN SUSTAINABILITY AND MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE TO THE ENVIRONMENT AND YOUR COMMUNITY
Do you live, work or study in the Cities of Darebin or Banyule? Would you like to lead sustainability projects in your community? If so, the Sustainable Homes and Communities Program would like to hear from you and offer you a free 8 week training course in how to run a community project as well as increasing your environmental sustainability knowledge.
The ‘Community Leaders in Sustainability’ program will provide skills and training in:
*effective communication and marketing (including using social media)
*community group member recruitment
At the end of the training program, participants will put their knowledge and skills into practice, and work to deliver a project which creates positive environmental outcomes in their local communities.
The ‘Community Leaders in Sustainability’ program will run from February to April 2014 and will be held at Darebin Council offices in Preston on Tuesday evenings (for Darebin residents), and at Ivanhoe Town Hall on Saturday afternoons (for Banyule residents).
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
If you are interested in participating, please complete and return the application form by Friday 13 December 2013. We hope to let you know by early January 2014 if you have a place in the course.
