The 2014 Illawarra Sustainability Leadership Development Program crew
The Sustainability Leadership Development Programs are well underway in the Illawarra and Northern Rivers regions.
21 emerging leaders from the Illawarra and 20 from the Northern Rivers have embarked on the parallel programs, made possible due to a generous partnership with the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage.
With two weekend workshops out of three completed participants are getting stuck into their projects which are helping to address a broad range of sustainability challenges, including a community response to renewable energy projects in the Northern Rivers and environmental and social justice projects specific to the Illawarra. They have benefited from inspirational speakers including Jason Clarke of Minds at Work, Lisa Miller from Resource Recovery Australia and Amanda Cahill from the Centre for Social Change.
We are excited to be working with these inspiring leaders and to be supporting regional communities to enact their vision for a resilient regional Australia.
