Youth Leading the Mallee – call to get involved

Passionate about the environment? Looking for an opportunity to develop your leadership skills? Want to inspire young people to act? Swan Hill Rural City Council is encouraging interested people to take advantage of the OzGreen Youth Leading the World Facilitator Training in Swan Hill on 10 and 11 March.

The training will give you solutions-focused tools to tackle sustainability challenges, generate a vision and action plans. Topics covered include global and local sustainability challenges such as climate change, food, energy and water. You will develop skills to help you lead change including measuring an eco-footprint, participatory leadership, strategic questioning and deep listening, visioning, goals and action planning.

OzGreen CEO Sue Lennox is excited about facilitating at the training program.

“The training will not only develop and enhance your leadership skills, it will also enable you to inspire and empower a movement of emerging change leaders,” she said.

“Plus, you will get to meet other people who are passionate about empowering youth to create sustainable futures”.

Council will partner with OzGreen again to bring a Youth Leading the World Congress to Swan Hill from 24 to 26 March. Selected facilitators will assist in leading the congress, which is set to bring about positive changes to the lives of young people in the municipality.

Last year, Council took out the Sustainability Initiative and Young Achiever Awards at the LGPro Awards for Excellence for Youth Leading the Mallee. OzGreen is an independent not-for-profit organisation that operates nationally in Australia and overseas in India, Central America and East Timor.
