As part of the Emerging Leaders Program participants undertake a module on sustainability in local government.
Jayne Preece, City of Mitcham from the module organising group shares her thoughts on the day.
You were recently part of the ELP Sustainability module organising group, responsible for the planning, development and implementation of a session for participants. What are some of the key ideas that you got out of this day, and how did this experience assist your professional and personal development?
“As one of the team involved in planning, developing and implementing the Sustainability Module for our ELP I not only gained a new understanding of what sustainability means for local government,in particular the award winning Stormwater Management and Reuse Scheme at the Rural City of Murray Bridge, but further developed my skills in the areas of coordinating guest speakers, preparing relevant and engaging content and ensuring everything ran smoothly on the day. What a great opportunity!”
