What is the Grasstree Fellowship?
It’s a special training program that has been created for community members, with community input and feedback built into the design. Conservation Volunteers Australia have partnered with two skilled guides (Lina Patel and Matt Wicking) to offer the Grass Tree Fellowship: A special online learning program for up to 50 people who have a connection to or live in the Blue Mountains LGA. Through a facilitated series of evening workshops, participants will be offered opportunities for growth and learning – with the aim of creating stronger, healthier communities and ecosystems for all.
When the heat is on and the flood waters are rising, we step up and pitch in. We find ways to do what’s needed to support those around us.
In the wake of those moments, we have the chance to find a little space to focus on how we’re working together to make meaningful change happen in the world.
That’s what the Grass Tree Fellowship is about: A freetraining program designed around four online evening workshopsstarting on May 30 to support and empower the doers among us.
The program will include the following skills training:
* Getting stuff done
* Working with groups
* Advocating for your project
* Staying buoyant and flexible
Registrations are now open for the Blue Mountains online leadership program, they close midnight Sunday 21 May.
You are encouraged to register for the program if you are living or active in the Blue Mountains region, part of a community group, team or network taking action together OR currently getting things done as a ‘team of one’. You must be 18 and Aboriginal and Torres Straits Islander people and people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) background are strongly encouraged to register for the program. We have a maximum of 50 places available for the program.
The program is FREE to participate in, being funded by the Australian and the NSW Government under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements.
