“We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give”
This quote by Sir Winston Churchill is an underpinning philosophy for the Waterway Management Emerging Leaders Program which would not be possible without the support of organisations willing to ‘give’ and invest in social capital. Our social capital is made up of people, relationships and networks, and we know that any successful business or enterprise is one that values and prioritises looking after their people. Anyone interested in supporting our Waterway Management Emerging Leaders Program is welcome to get in touch with the team.
The Waterway Management Emerging Leaders Program is a partnership managed by the Glenelg Hopkins Catchment Management Authority and the Australian River Restoration Centre. The inaugural Waterway Management Emerging Leaders Program (known as the Waterway Management Twinning Program at the time) was funded through the International Riverfoundation National Prize money awarded to the Glenelg Hopkins Catchment Management Authority in 2013. The Twinning Program was then funded by the Victorian Government through the $30 million Regional Riparian Action Plan, and is part of $222 million committed in Water for Victoria to improve the health of waterways and catchments in Victoria. We are grateful for further support from the Victorian government to support the Waterway Management Emerging Leaders Program in 2023.
The River Basin Management Society sponsored the Program in 2017, 2018 and 2019 by providing a $6000 scholarship for RBMS members. We are pleased to have the RBMS supporting the program again in 2023. Other organisations who share a passion for supporting people are also welcome to join us.
