During the Rivers Fellowship, you'll learn practical skills to impact policy decisions and shape the public conversation on how to look after the rivers in our Basin. 

We will skill you up and support you to run local campaigns in your area including community organising, media, mobilising tactics, events, lobbying decision makers and mobilising people in your community to come to Canberra to meet with your elected representatives. 

Training and coaching during the fellowship is delivered by experts in their fields – plus participants sharing their own valuable knowledge and experience from their communities. 

Training and coaching includes:

  • Three intensive weekend retreats
  • Eight webinars
  • Eight coaching sessions
  • Ongoing support and a small budget to run your own local campaign activities including community events in August
  • The Canberra Water Week Summit and fellowship graduation (October 2018)
