Do you live, work or study in the Cities of Darebin or Banyule? Would you like to lead sustainability initiatives in your community? If so, the Sustainable Homes and Communities Program would like to offer you free training 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 project management, leadership, grant writing, effective marketing, building partnerships, community group member recruitment and advocacy, as well aspects of environmental sustainability.

At the end of the training program, participants will put their new found knowledge and skills into practice, and work to deliver a project which creates positive environmental outcomes in their local communities.

The Sustainable Homes and Communities Program recently hosted a workshop about avoiding food waste


With advice from Masterchef's 2013 finalist, Samira El-Khafir, participants learned how to shop, cook and store food in order to reduce food waste, and therefore reduce household food bills and impact on the environment. Check out the video of the workshop for some top tips on how you too might reduce food waste!
