Victorian Local Government Leadership Intensive 2023

In May 2023, WELA ran a Leadership Intensive for Victorian Local Government supported by the Northern Alliance for Greenhouse Action (NAGA). 

Bringing together 19 women and gender diverse people engaged in local government who are working on climate and environmental issues, this WELA Intensive connected participants from urban and rural communities and highlighted the powerful impact that local government changemakers are having.

 

[This retreat] brought together women and gender diverse people who are working on key challenges from climate change on the environment and sustainability…the sharing of their solutions and their challenges has been extremely positive.  The knowledge that they are not alone was motivating.

  • I think all of the content covered was very important.  I appreciated the delivery style and flow of each day that gave space for reflection and down time so we could best absorb all this amazing information.
