RDA Northern Rivers, together with the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation (ARLF) and the Regional Australia Institute (RAI) is inviting applications for the 5 day Leading Australian Resilient Communities (LARC) program.
The LARC program will deliver a combination of place-based multi-day leadership sessions to identify challenges, opportunities and what underpins them; as well as webinars; group coaching; and support for practical, community led projects. The Northern Rivers Future Forum held in Ballina on 19 September was the first step, with data collected on the day being used in the program.
There will be 26 scholarships available for the multi-day leadership sessions, which will be held in October 2022 and February 2023. You can find out more about this program and apply here. You can download the Northern Rivers LARC flyer here.
The one-day forum was a free event with guest speakers Anita Kuss, presenting on behalf of the RAI, the Australian Resilience Centre’s Paul Ryan and the ALRF Manager of Learning Andrew Bryant. The days proceedings included RAI’s latest economic and social data specific to the Northern Rivers region to support exploration of local opportunities.
