Event & Local Action – The Roundtables Are Back! – 1 November

Posted in Events, Research, Visions by Ferne Edwards on October 26th, 2007

Re-energising the Sustainability Education Roundtables

Following previous successful Roundtables, the Victorian Association for Environmental Education is keen to foster the development of a dialogue amongst practitioners about what is most effective and efficient for sustainability learning and change to occur. The November Roundtable process is supported by Sustainability Victoria and the Department of Sustainability and Environment.

The climate has now changed for our work as facilitators of sustainability learning and change.
The community view of environmental issues has shifted in major ways. The need for action has become more urgent. We as practitioners and change agents have now had several years of experience of trying out what works best in this new climate – What have we learnt and what can we now share?
There are also new limiting factors and barriers – What are these?
The government has new agencies, policies and strategies: Sustainability Victoria and the Department of Sustainability and Environment are looking for ways to engage with practitioners to support effective change efforts – What are the best arrangements for this?
Much can be learnt from sharing our experiences, knowledge and practice – How we can all become more effective and coordinate our efforts?

We invite you to be part of this re-vitalised process. Come and have your say! Share your ideas with others. Help shape the future of sustainability learning & change in Victoria.

Introduction by Mike Hill – chair of previous Roundtables
Updates from Dept. Sustainability & Environment and Sustainability Victoria
