Developing community leaders
THOSE prepared to stand with their communities when disaster strikes are encouraged to consider a new leadership training course delivered by the Alpine Valleys Community Leadership Inc.
The course seeks to develop leaders who will be available to north east Victoria communities in times of need, such as the 2019-20 bushfires and supporting climate change adaptation.
The eight-day program is supported by North East Catchment Management Authority (NECMA), through funding from the Australian Government’s National
Landcare Program and the Victorian Government, in partnership with Central Hume Primary Care Partnership and the Gardiner Foundation.
Regional Agricultural Landcare facilitator with NECMA, Lachlan Campbell, said those prepared to stand with their communities when disaster strikes should consider this course.
“They will have the opportunity to learn from some of the best climate modellers to understand the changes expected in the weather patterns in North East Victoria, as well as what these changes might mean for their community, agricultural business and environment,” he said.
Alpine Valleys Community Leadership executive officer, Jacqui Bramwell, said training will be delivered by experts who will guide participants through an experiential program focused on leading their community through change.
Ms Bramwell said the program will be delivered over seven months from June 2021 at $100 per person and registrations closes May 21.
