Are you a passionate emerging leader living in the Murray-Darling Basin?

The Rivers Fellowship program gives leaders practical skills to campaign for healthier rivers. You'll learn strategy, messaging,  lobbying, advocacy and community mobilisation so you can run local campaigns in your area.

Applications are now open.<https://www.acf.org.au/lifeblood_fellowship_application>

The Australian Conservation Foundation is partnering with the Lifeblood Alliance to train community leaders to run campaigns and empower their local communities to advocate for a healthy Murray-Darling Basin.

We are calling for leaders to step forward.

Throughout the fellowship, you'll learn practical skills to impact policy decisions, mobilise your community and shape the public conversation about our Basin. This includes:

•        An intensive weekend retreat on changing the story (28-30 April) in Renmark

•        A second intensive retreat on building people power (27-29 May)

•        Eight webinars focusing on specific skills to run local campaigns

•        Eight coaching sessions for feedback and advice

•        Ongoing support and a small budget to run your own local campaign activities including community events in August

•        The National Water Week Summit and fellowship graduation in Canberra (14-16 October)
