Please note: This program accepts applications from individuals with a connection to the Upper Murray & who have the ability to contribute to the Upper Murray community.

The program aims to empower Upper Murray community members to learn how to think differently; not only to tackle challenges of any scale and size, but to create transformative change in their own lives, and in reshaping the future of our thriving and vibrant region.

The program runs over 10 days, including a five-day study-tour to Tasmania. Participants will be immersed in hearing from some of the best and brightest minds, including Nuffield scholars, innovative operators, and entrepreneurs. The aim of the study tour is to not only witness first-hand how others in regional settings have reimagined their community, but to understand the practical elements of leading change, learning more about succession planning and the shift in mindset that underpins achieving transformative outcomes.

You will:

  • Build personal capacity, skills, networks and confidence.
  • Learn key leadership fundamentals for building relationships.
  • Gain knowledge regarding the importance of resilience, health, and wellbeing in our communities.
  • Learn what other communities are doing to support future growth and development.
  • Participate in a study tour to Tasmania to explore the practical elements of theoretical change.

Participants should:

  • Have a current or aspiration for a future voluntary role in community focused recovery and economic development.
  • Participants must be aged 18 and over.

  • The program will be 10 days, including an overnight retreat, and a 5-day study tour to Tasmania.
