My predominant interests currently are to research and facilitate systemic change in NRM governance. I am passionate about improving the way in which community and government sectors work together in NRM so our collective effort is more effective and motivating. We need to change what and how we do NRM as the environment and society need solutions now and the old, top-down methods are not working.
The Latrobe Valley Authority was established in November 2016 to coordinate Victorian Government action in the Latrobe Valley as it transitions to a diversified economy. We are based in Latrobe Valley, staffed by local people. We are driving positive change by working collaboratively with local community and industry, focusing on shaping the future the way local people aspire it to grow. We are doing this by:
• supporting employees, contractors, supply chain employees and family members affected by the closure of Hazelwood Power Station to connect to the services they need so they can re-train, find a new job, start a business, and manage their finances and personal health.
• supporting businesses by cutting red tape, and providing incentives to expand and establish in the Latrobe Valley through the Economic Growth Zone.
• supporting communities by delivering programs to ensure the Latrobe Valley is a strong and vibrant community and well prepared for the future. The Latrobe Valley Authority is an equal opportunity employer and our recruitment process focuses on essential skills and abilities.

Mission: To build a community of Members (the choir) – who will get to klt (know like and trust ) each other over time – those who are passionate about climate action and want to make a difference – with a view to take people who are not in the choir to be inspired to take action – when it comes to to climate.
