Upcoming Courses

Each year we hold a Community Leaders in Sustainability course for Darebin and Banyule participants.

The next course will start in February 2019. Applications for this course open from 13 December 2018 and close on 3 January 2019.

To apply, you must live, work or study in the Cities of Banyule or Darebin.

We encourage applications from small teams to work on a project together and also existing community groups to apply and then run the project within your current community group. If you have another person/s you would like to work with, you will need to put in one application each, and check the box for a team project. We will assess your application both individually and as a team.
