WALGA will be hosting a full-day event on Embedding Sustainability and Enabling Behaviour Change on Thursday, 8 November in Perth.

Please join us for this fantastic opportunity to hear about mechanisms that can be used to embed sustainability within and across Local Government.  This will be complemented with information on the underlying psychological principles of behaviour change, and how these can be used to drive individual action and sustained change.

Expert speakers include representatives from the Local Governments of Fremantle, Canning and Melville, Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, Curtin University Sustainability Policy Institute, Murdoch University, sociologists, not-for-profit community organisations and WALGA.

The event will include a walk through the beautiful botanical gardens of Perth Zoo to view sustainability initiatives, and a panel discussion with speakers.

The program will cover:
  •  behaviour change and communication principles to enable sustained change
  •  application of key sustainability frameworks in Local Government, such as One Planet Living and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
  •  the integration of sustainability across business operations at Perth Zoo and experience based learning to drive conservation action
  •  real-time data monitoring systems to benchmark and monitor energy and water use, and prioritise actions to maximisue utility and cost savings
  •  sustainable procurement practices in Local Government; and
  •  environmental behaviour change programs to empower local communities to take meaningful and sustained action.

Morning tea and lunch will be provided.  Please dress appropriately for the weather.
