Enviro Champions wanted in 2018!

 Hume residents with an interest in all things environmental are being called to register for Hume City Council’s free Enviro Champions Training program in 2018.

Hume Mayor Geoff Porter said participants would receive training to help design and develop a project that improves the local environment.

The Enviro Champions Program not only provides a free training opportunity, it also allows you to design and deliver an environmental project that can make a real and lasting impact,” Cr Porter said.

“Over the six years that the Enviro Champions program has been running, participants have worked on 37 community projects, which have engaged more than 8000 people in the municipality.”

“Past participants have not only been able to deliver a fantastic range of environmental projects, they have also been able to connect with like-minded people, learn about sustainability and change their behaviour to contribute to a healthier future for themselves and our planet.

“By participating in the program, you become part of a great social network of community members who advocate and take action for the environment.”

The Enviro Champions program is open to anyone who lives, works or studies in Hume, and the environmental projects organised by the Champions are to take place in Hume.

Registrations close on Friday 16 February. Places are filling fast and people are encouraged to register soon.

Locals who are interested in participating in the Hume Enviro Champions Training program can find out more information and apply at www.hume.vic.gov.au/envirochampions.  

What is an Enviro Champion’s community project?

Anything you can think of which helps people take action to reduce their environmental impact.

For example, you could organise a food swap, help your workplace reduce energy use or start a community compost program.
