Tasmanian Sustainability Community of Practice 

Date:  Thursday, 28 August, 10.00-15.00
Venue: Baha'i Centre of Learning, 1 Tasman Highway

The UTAS Education for Sustainability Community of Practice is excited to announce the third workshop of the Tasmanian Sustainability Community of Practice (Tas Sustainability CoP) on 28 August in Hobart at the Baha'i Centre.  The Tas Sustainability CoP is a developing state-wide network of sustainability practitioners, educators, professionals and community members working together to advance sustainability initiatives across the state. This third workshop is being hosted by UTAS as part of a Community Engagement Grant and aims to: (1) identify a clear set of shared goals, objectives and an organising framework to guide the future direction of the Tas Sustainability CoP; and (2) define a set of indicators of success that can be collaboratively monitored over time.  Anyone interested in sustainability in Tasmania is welcome to attend.

There is a $10 fee payable on the day. Register online for this workshop.
