The Rivers Fellowship is for leaders in river communities who are passionate and are willing to speak up and stand up for a healthy river. We're looking for farmers, scientists, Traditional Owners, local businesses and leaders in the Basin to hold the long view, stand up to vested interests and make sure our rivers can keep flowing through our vast dry land. Places are limited. Participants will be selected for the Rivers Fellowship based on:

  • Values alignment: You are passionately committed to restoring the health of rivers in the Murray-Darling Basin
  • Personal connection: You have a personal connection to the Murray or Darling rivers, tributaries, floodplains or estuaries
  • Demonstrated leadership: You are a leader in your community
  • Commitment: You are committed to developing your skills, actively campaigning for the Basin plan in 2018 and setting up a local group or network. 

We strongly encourage Indigenous candidates to apply.
