Community Leaders in Sustainability is returning in 2016-17 in Banyule and Darebin
Do you live, work or study in the City of Darebin or Banyule? Do you aspire to lead action for environmental sustainability in your community? If so, Sustainable Homes and Communities would like to hear from you and potentially offer you free training and support to design and run a community environmental project.
The free Community Leaders in Sustainability course will provide skills and training in project management, leadership, grant writing, marketing and communication, building partnerships, effective group work and will cover a range of aspects of environmental sustainability.
Weekly training workshops and field trips will run for 10 weeks. Then you'll work with like-minded people from the course to deliver a community environmental project.
The Darebin course starts in October 2016. Applications are open now. Click on the Community Leaders tab at left to download an application form and course overview.
The Banyule course will run from February 2017, and applications open in October.
We’ll also be running more community workshops and activities on a range of environmental topics in Banyule and Darebin through 2016 and 2017. Topics will include more Gardening for Habitat and Biodiversity at La Trobe Wildlife Sanctuary, Ethical Investment and Divestment, and Sustainable Transport.
Remember, all our events are free of charge, so keep an eye out here and on the Workshops and Events tab to find out what's coming up.
