This program unites like-minded people to explore complex sustainability issues.
You'll collaborate on projects tackling problems in areas of water usage, energy, food, liveable cities, waste management, climate management or risk management.
You'll extend your views of sustainability and sustainable practice by:
- exploring your views of sustainability and how it affects your employer and the project, and encouraging yourself into action around change
- developing sustainable practice as a process of continual change based on reflective practice
- recognising the Long Now - that this precise moment grows out of the past and is a seed for the future
- recognising that we can create realities by first imagining them
- recognising that being here includes more than work and home; that the Big Here could be the wider local community, Australia and the world.
Ideas developed from Brian Eno's 'The Big Here and Long Now'.
You'll develop capabilities to achieve sustainable practice by:
- communicating coherently across disciplines and with the broader community
- identifying and defining sustainability problems by researching and developing proposals
- leading, managing and participating effectively in change processes
- evaluating activities undertaken for efficiency
- being aware of self, others and the processes used.
