August 13, 2007
MACROC has “won” Intensive Sustainability Training for Macarthur Councils!
The Local Government and Shires Associations received funding from the NSW Government's Environment Trust to provide intensive ESD/Sustainability Training to a very few selected councils.
MACROC worked with the MACROC Councils and Liverpool City Council to submit an expression of interest for participation in the training. The MACROC Consortia was one of only 4 chosen from 24 high quality applications!
The President of MACROC Councillor Rob Elliott explains, “There is a strong focus in the Region on sustainable development and the Intensive Sustainability Training will provide councils with an opportunity to continue to build sustainability into all their infrastructure.”
“MACROC is strongly committed to achieving positive economic development outcomes for the region but at the same time is conscious of maintaining the unique environment of the Macarthur Region”, says Rob Elliott.
“The Councils will be able to shape the training to achieve maximum outcomes for the Region.”
