- About the Trust
The Peter Cullen Trust builds leadership capacity in Australia's water & environment sector.
Each year, the Trust and our sponsors contribute over $300,000 towards developing leaders who improve Australia’s water and environment management. We are an apolitical, non-lobbying entity which does not advocate for any singular position.
A warm welcome to 36 Fellows who have graduated from Peter Cullen Trust leadership programs in November. They all are now members of the Peter Cullen Trust National Fellows Network.On Thursday 17 November, 17 Fellows from across Australia completed the 2016 Science-to-Policy Leadership program. And on Thursday 10 November, in Melbourne, 19 Fellows from Victoria completed the inaugural Women-in-Water-Leadership program.
Both cohorts of Fellows treated guests to presentations on topics of water and climate. And prestigious guest speakers spoke at both events. In Melbourne, we heard from the State Minister for Water Hon. Lisa Neville MP, and also from two Fellows who have been mainstays of the Fellows network ever since they graduated in 2010. In Canberra, Hon. Tim Fischer AC (a former Deputy Prime Minister) gave a wide-ranging talk during dinner, preceded by some words from Major General Michael Jeffery (a former Governor General) as he presented the Fellows' certificates.
These 36 new Fellows are now part of the Trust's diverse interactive network of 122 Fellows across regional and urban Australia.
