Dear friends

In partnership with Snowy Monaro Regional Council, on April 8th,  Upper Snowy Landcare is hosting a one-day ‘Intrepid Way’ workshop designed by Landcare Australia for youth (18-35y) and people who support our youth to create change through community work.

We only have 25 spaces so please register your interest and confirm as soon as possible via Angela Sharp via [email protected]nsw.gov.au. This workshop is fully sponsored so there is no attendance fee.

Intrepid Landcare has developed a training resource to assist communities in NSW in their efforts to engage young people into Landcare and other environmental initiatives. The workshop aims to upskill people from a range of Landcare and environmental organisations to engage young people. Workshops will focus on developing a collaborative approach to co-designing and delivering projects that are appealing to a younger generation.
