Local groups and service organisations are in an ideal position to change hearts, minds, and behaviours around climate issues. Their members are often seen as leaders in the community and modellers of positive behaviour. By building sustainability principles into your everyday operations, your group or organisation can set an example for others in the community, and improve your own green credentials for environmental, financial, and societal benefit.

This session will help your group or organisation incorporate simple, effective energy and waste practices into your day-to-day operations. Using group discussion and fun activities, this interactive workshop will look at the barriers groups experience, explore how environmental issues can affect your members and clients, and introduce you to circular economy principles for a more sustainable future. 

During the session, you’ll complete activities to help you identify ways in which your group or organisation’s current practices could be improved, and develop a take-home plan for some simple goals to implement now and in the longer term. You’ll also learn about the psychology of behaviour change and how to get wider members of the group on board with new strategies and goals.

Topics include:

  • the major environmental issues affecting us today
  • how sustainable choices benefit your group and your client base
  • improving the sustainability of your group's day-to-day operations
  • developing a plan for short and longer term goals
  • Connecting with other groups looking to make positive change

Who is it for?

The session is aimed at all Nillumbik community groups and their members, along with interested service organisations.
