Nom­i­nate a Green Army ini­tia­tive

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Swan Electorate -

AP­PLI­CA­TIONS are open for com­mu­nity and en­vi­ron­men­tal groups and lo­cal coun­cils to nom­i­nate new Green Army projects.

Swan MHR Steve Irons said Round 3 of ap­pli­ca­tions was un­der­way.

The projects sup­port prac­ti­cal ac­tiv­i­ties while pro­vid­ing peo­ple aged 17 to 24 with the chance to get train­ing and ex­pe­ri­ence in en­vi­ron­men­tal and con­ser­va­tion fields.

To be el­i­gi­ble for Round 3, project spon­sors must have at least one project ready to begin be- tween June 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016.

“Projects must run for 20 to 26 weeks and can take place across ur­ban, re­gional and re­mote Australia on public land, in­dige­nousheld lands or pri­vate land,” Mr Irons said.

“Projects must ben­e­fit the en­vi­ron­ment or na­tional or in­dige­nous her­itage and of­fer par­tic­i­pants valu­able prac­ti­cal ex­pe­ri­ence.”
