Facilitating Sustainable Change

The workshop will focus on facilitating sustainable change towards positive community relations within the current social and political environment.
This will be an interactive workshop where we will explore together the key elements to, and influences on, the change process.

This program is a partnership strategy between Queensland State and Local Governments which aims to develop and implement multicultural strategies at the local level.
