EOI | Environment & Sustainability Community of Practice
Be part of IAP2 Australasia’s Environment & Sustainability Community of Practice!
Thank you for your interest in being part of our Environment & Sustainability Communities of Practice.
The purpose of this Community of Practice (CoP) group is to provide IAP2 Australasia members with a way to meet other practitioners within common areas of practice or expertise, and to extend networks, learn from each other, and share ideas and issues.
The aim is to build a CoP for experienced practitioners and complement the work IAP2 Australasia is doing to form other CoPs within common areas of practice of expertise.
An important aspect is providing a safe, confidential space for members to share issues they may be having and access a ‘brains trust’ to benefit from the experiences of others.
The group meets 6 to 8 times per year, generally on a Wednesday from 12:00pm – 1.15pm AEST.
