Grow your capacity, your network and your influence to empower your community.

The Sustainability Leadership Development (SLD) program offers a unique opportunity to create collaborative and empowered action in responding to the increasingly complex sustainability challenges facing the Hunter Central Coast Region.

The program’s full value is worth $4,200 per participant, which is funded by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage. The participants are expected to pay a heavily subsidised fee depending on their occupation


  • We help you supercharge your POTENTIAL - because right now, we need you standing tall with a positive vision of the future and the confidence and capability to make it happen. You bring the passion and commitment, and we'll bring the 'transformative process for developing individual and collective leadership capability in the 21st Century' (but we promise we'll leave the jargon at the door)!
  • We help you clarify your PURPOSE - because really knowing 'why' is the best way to sharpen 'what' you do and 'how' you do it. Through deep reflection and mindfulness, we help you find what's at the centre of your being. What drives and motivates you? What frustrates you? What turns you on? That's where this program starts.
  • We help you build your TRIBE - because no one can change the world on their own (and it's much less fun that way anyway). We'll link you with great guest speakers, mentors and coaches. You'll build beautiful connections with a new community of Fellows. And you'll also become part of our growing and increasingly influential network of over 600 amazing alumni.

SLD will build the leadership capacity and networks of emerging local government, business and community leaders. The program specifically focuses on skill development in the area of:

  • Visioning and creative problem-solving
  • Project ideation, design, evaluation and action
  • Communications and storytelling
  • Alternative economic models such as social enterprise and crowdsourcing
  • Collaboration, networking and capacity-building for self and community
  • Contribution to achieving net zero emissions in NSW by 2050
