Living SustainablyIssue 1 - Dec 2005
Building on earlier partnership work between the Department of Environment and Conservation (NSW) and the Local Community Services Association (LCSA), the Sustaining Eco-friendly Communities project focuses on encouraging neighbourhood and community centre staff and volunteers to live and work sustainably.
It uses past experiences to increase the capacity of centre staff and participants to learn about and take action for their environment.
Regional workshops with Neighbourhood and Community Centres in NSW are being held to promote the ongoing use of the Eco-friendly Communities kit to not only showcase successful projects, but also to encourage sharing of both ideas and local resources.
Local government officers and utility providers are also included in the workshops to assist with the design and support of local environmental projects.
