Spring has Sprung!! and we are feeling full of energy.
Whilst COVID is still impacting the way we live and work across Australia, our teams have become very resourceful in supporting individuals and communities.
In the last few weeks, our Community Building team, (Dee, Fiona and Michelle) has been having lots of fun, facilitating the Neighbourhood Houses Tasmania first ever online conference bringing together over 100 community builders and workers from across Tasmania for 3 days to share gifts, learn new collaborative tools and share stories and experiences. The team spent two days online sharing participatory leadership tools with young scholars from the University of Newcastle and to support participatory project development to support Beyond Zero Emissions initiatives across the Hunter Valley.
We are excited to be in planning for some wonderful opportunities in November including a 2 day online Art of Hosting training and a 2 day Art of Participatory Community Building workshop. Stay tuned for details in the coming weeks.
As the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability continues across Australia, we encourage you to keep up to date and get involved in the hearings. For details visit the Royal Commission website.
