Fellowship for youth in sustainability
Wednesday, 22 February, 2006
The Victorian State Government has established a fellowship to nurture young people making a significant contribution to the future sustainability of Victoria. The fellowship was developed to recognise the contribution of Dr Brian Robinson (AM) to Victoria.
The fellowship embodies one of the State Government's key environmental messages in that we each have a part to play in improving the environment we all live in.
The fellowship will take the form of a study tour or placement for a person aged under 35 who may have the potential to one day contribute to national and global sustainability.
The key criteria of the award of the fellowship are:
- the capacity for the project to make a substantial contribution to the future sustainability of Victoria; and
- the leadership potential of the applicant to foster sustainability in Victoria
To assist in evaluation of the above criteria, the project must demonstrate one or more of the following:
- a commitment to scientific excellence
- the potential to involve the community in developing or adopting more sustainable lifestyles
- the potential to contribute to policy development in environmental management and/or sustainability
- the development and application of technology to environmental and/or sustainability issues
- lifecycle improvements in the use of resources
The Fellowship is sponsored by EPA Victoria, Sustainability Victoria and the Victorian Government.
The closing date for applications is 5pm Friday 24 March 2006.
