Behaviour Change Network

About the SIG

This SIG provides a network for environmental professionals working in Local Government to help them design, deliver and evaluate best practice environmental behaviour change programs for local communities.

Who Should Attend

All Local Government professionals involved in environmental behaviour change.

Behaviour Change Network Online Forum

This SIG is supported by an online forum. We believe that accessing knowledge from individuals who work in a similar environment is invaluable and should never be underestimated. Our forums are just for people working in Local Government and there are many benefits to participating in them. They are a great way to keep in touch in between meetings, by asking your fellow SIG colleagues questions and sharing resources. Agendas, minutes and presentations will also be posted on the forum.

Behaviour Change Network SIG Convenor, Carole Hammond, Team Leader Sustainable Development, Strathbogie Shire Council

Attending the LGPro Behaviour Change Network SIG meetings is a great experience – I enjoy meeting professionals in the field and learning from their sustainability projects and programs throughout the community. I’m often discovering amazing but lamentably understated projects so, I get a lot of satisfaction bringing the project staff, the ‘do-ers’ in to transfer their precious knowledge to so many Councils around the Behaviour Change Network table. I hope I can do some of that (and learn some more myself) this year!

Behaviour Change Network SIG Convenor, Elizabeth Shield, Environmental Community Development Officer, Hume City Council

I was inspired to become a SIG Convenor because I find attending the network to be valuable and wanted to contribute. It is very motivational to hear about what other people are doing in the sector for Sustainability in their LGA, as well as an important source of support for people who may be more isolated in their roles.  The SIG is a really unique and specific network that is extremely relevant to the work I am doing. I enjoy the opportunity to share my work and get feedback from other professionals in the same field, this is a really important aspect of being a participant in the SIG.  I also find it encouraging to hear about opportunities, challenges and successes in the area of Behaviour Change that other Councils have, as we can all learn from each other and take something valuable away each time.  My vision for the SIG is that we can grow the network, and make it more active and vibrant. If that happens, I will feel I have been successful.
