Would you like to lead sustainability initiatives in your community? Do you live, work or study in the Cities of Darebin or Banyule? 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.
This free course is one session every fortnight for 16 weeks. It will be held at Darebin Council offices in Preston every second Thursday evening (for Darebin residents), and at Ivanhoe Town Hall every second Tuesday evening (for Banyule residents).
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form. Applications are due Friday 12th December 2014.
