You can post a project for funding to the AEGN Clearinghouse simply by emailing members@aegnlist.org.au with a summary of the project including title, what it aims to achieve, how much funding is required, DGR status and contact details for more information.  It is also useful to explain why you are recommending the project.  Most projects are posted by AEGN members who have contributed funding to a project that requires further funding. Read about two projects that current require funding: Women’s Environmental Leadership in Action (WELA 2016) Listed by Ann McGregor, Melliodora Fund, Australian Communities Foundation Sub-fund WELA is a leadership program designed by and for women environmentalists. The first cohort of 20 women will participate in a 10-day residential course over three blocks during 2016, as well as a mentorship program.  The women will be selected for diverse backgrounds and ages, and be working (paid or unpaid) on environmental issues in different parts of Australia. They will examine what leadership means, develop leadership skills, and gain a deeper understanding of how gender and leadership are constructed in the environment movement and in the industries and organisations it engages with. The course will be delivered by The Change Agency, which also delivers the highly-regarded Community Organising Fellowship. Sponsors of full ($5000) or part ($2500) scholarships are being sought, to support participants who cannot afford the program fees. For details on how to donate, click here.

The Ian Potter Foundation has provided funding to employ a full-time Research Assistant to support the CEC’s Threatened Species Surveillance Network project.  This new role will enable the Centre to conduct critical research into wildlife conservation. Partnership funding is needed for a vehicle to support the Research Assistant.  The CEC is also commencing several other exciting conservation projects and is seeking partners for these.
