Going Further - Special Offer
25 October 2004 at 1:10 pm

“Going Further” is about sustainability and leadership and in February 2005 two Pro Bono Australia readers will be taking part in the debate.

The key questions it addresses are:

– What are the long term issues facing Victoria and Australia?

– What are the economic, environmental, social and cultural challenges facing leaders?

– In what ways could young leaders’ understanding of these issues be enhanced?

The Program is particularly designed to stimulate debate about the relationship between economic, environmental, social and cultural issues. It will explore the ways in which corporate, institutional and community attitudes to these issues may need to be adjusted to develop a sustainable, forward looking and cohesive society.

The Program, which runs over six months, involves six two-hour formal lunch events. The participants, in addition to attending the six events, work in teams to develop ideas for sustainability.

Speakers at previous lunches have included Don Henry, Executive Director of
Australian Conservation Foundation; Rob Adams, Director City Projects, City of Melbourne and Greg Bourne, Chair, Sustainable Energy Authority of Victoria.

The cost is $1,000 for each participant in the six month program. (Not for Profit organisations are free, but numbers are extremely limited.) Two lucky readers of the Pro Bono Australia e-Newsletter who occupy a senior position within their organisation will be selected to take part in this exclusive program courtesy of Dr. Helen Sykes and the “Going Further” program.

To be eligible for this special offer just send us an email outlining what you or your organisation can bring to the debate on sustainability and leadership. Please keep your entry to 250 words. If you would like more information about the Going Further Program go to
