Description: Work:Logos all:SEWPaC Logo:DSEWPaC_inline_strip_black.eps

Minister for the Environment’s Indigenous Advisory Committee

Chairperson and Committee Members (2)

The Minister for the Environment, The Hon Greg Hunt MP, is seeking to appoint three members, including one as Chairperson, to his Indigenous Advisory Committee. The successful candidates will be Indigenous Australians with expertise in Indigenous land and sea management, conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, and/or cultural heritage management.

The Indigenous Advisory Committee (IAC) is a statutory committee established in 2000 under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) [section 505A]. The EPBC Act is the Australian Government’s central piece of environmental legislation that provides a framework for protection of the Australian environment, including its biodiversity and its natural and culturally significant places. It provides a legal framework to protect and manage nationally and internationally important flora, fauna, ecological communities and heritage places – defined under the EPBC Act as Matters of National Environmental Significance.

The function of the IAC [section 505B] is to advise the Minister for the Environment (the Minister) on the operation of the EPBC Act, taking into account the significance of Indigenous peoples’ knowledge of the management of land and the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.  

The duties of the role include:

·         Provide advice to the Minister and the Department on issues that are relevant to achieving the objectives of the EPBC Act, including the protection of the environment (especially those aspects of the environment that are Matters of National Environmental Significance)

·         Ensure the views of Indigenous peoples are considered in the administration of the EPBC Act and its reform

·         Provide the Minister with a communiqué following each meeting reporting on Indigenous issues relating to the EPBC Act and matters of interest to the Department

·         Advise on other matters that affect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the environment portfolio

·         Represent the Committee at Departmental meetings, stakeholder forums or present at conferences

Current committee members are eligible to apply for the Chairperson position.  Expiring members are eligible to reapply.

Further information can be found on the IAC website.

For an application pack, please contact the Department of the Environment by email at iac@environment.gov.au

All applications close at 5:00pm AEST (Canberra time) on Monday 23 November 2015.

20. October 2015 · Comments Off on FW: Kickstart My Community Reminder · Categories: Uncategorized

 Just a quick reminder to register for the Kickstart My Community taster program before the 16th November!

 

The Kickstart My Community Program was designed to help activate change in Communities.  There can be times when we can identify change, but don’t know how to start, sometimes we just know change is needed but haven’t been able to identify the change.  Issues that may concern your community could be drugs, alcohol, domestic violence.  It could be as simple as you want help keep a tidy Community or build a park for the kids.  It could be a lunch or homework program.  Each Community has its own concerns and we want to help you help your Community for the better.  

 

The Kickstart My Community program was created by our Director and Head Coach Kerry Grace.  Kerry has worked alongside and in the Community Sector for over 14 years, a lot of this work has been with Aboriginal Communities, including a role as the Service Manager at MiiMi Aboriginal Corporation in Bowraville.  She saw and experienced first hand how there can be a lot of talk in Community – talk that leads nowhere and the Community is left with its troubles.  Communities around NSW and around Australia are looking for  more action – Community based action that really  matters to the Community.  

 

The Kickstart My Community has several different elements – the larger program is a monthly support program, but there is a taster program starting on the 16 November, to give you a “taste” of the larger program.  We can also do workshops in your town.  We have two coming up in November – one in Taree and one in Kyogle.  Each workshop is developed to address the needs in YOUR community.  Some of these workshops are run in partnership with not only LALCs but local councils and other community groups.   

 

Please don’t hesitate to contact me on 6568 1162 or 0429 392 916  to discuss the options which may suit you and your community.  And please don’t let lack of funds stop you from accessing this program  – just contact us and we can help access funding!

 

To give you a bit more of a back ground on Kerry and the Kickstart My Community program, here is a link to one of Kerry’s latest podcast –https://soundcloud.com/evolve-network/kickstart-my-community

 

I know this program will help your Community to action change – it will literally change your life and those around you for the good – for the long term!

Bread Winners Programme – Are you interested in Studying at University?

The University of Sydney’s Breadwinners’ Programme offers an opportunity for mature age Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, who work full time, to still meet their family commitments and study for an undergraduate degree.

The Breadwinners’ Programme creates a partnership between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workers, their employer, the Australian Government and the University of Sydney to support full time employees to study. This collaboration supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait people to gain qualifications that improve their career prospects and their ability to contribute to their family and community; as well as allowing employers to increase their quality of delivery and productivity.

The Programme works through an employer/employee agreement that allows Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workers to undertake study for a three year undergraduate degree over four years by permitting part time and full time studies at the University of Sydney.

Please visit the University of Sydney’s webpage to find out more about this program and important programme application dates.

Outward Bound Australia: Summit To Sea

Good Morning,

I hope you are keeping well. I was hoping to promote our epic Summit To Sea Program amongst young adults (18 years plus) in your local community. It is a great opportunity for Yr 12 students looking for an alternative to ‘schoolies’ or the general public 18-25 years. I am open to your suggestions as to the best way to share this message within your local community. The program is scheduled to run January 4-29, 2016. There is an early bird discount on the program fee if booked before October 4, 2015.

As previously mentioned, we have recently released some excellent footage of some of the activities undertaken on our programs: http://on.fb.me/1EchHhQ. Outward Bound programs are very highly regarded by employers – check out this excellent video released by our international colleagues in the UK .

 

Thanks for your time.

 

 

Kind regards,
