Through our work running leadership programs we have spent time with a lot of First Nations leaders around Australia and we know this referendum is a defining moment for them. We think it is also a defining moment for the rest of us to decide what our relationship is to our shared history and future. Let’s be proud of the choice we make!
As singer songwriter Paul Kelly asks “If not now, then when? If not us, then who?”
24 inspiring leaders from across the Eurobodalla started their 12 month leadership journey with the first Deep Dive three-day workshops at Murramarang Resort, South Durras. With a focus on community leadership the program represents many sectors of the Eurobodalla community. A real positive for the program is the mix of first and second nation participants.
The next workshop will begin to outline a range of community focused leadership programs that can be co-designed implemented over the next 12 months.
The program is being delivered by Global Learning in partnership with the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation and Southcoast Health and Sustainability Alliance.
Regenerate Eurobodalla is a fully funded 9 day leadership development program building community, business and government leadership capacity for resilience and sustainability.
Global Learning are collaborating with the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation and Southcoast Health and Sustainability Alliance to offer the program.

CONTEXT This is some of the learning insights from a research project sponsored by the NED Foundation since 2018 where Mark had conversations with over 60 restorative practitioners across Australia and internationally to explore the learning edges of their restorative practice and what insights they have in strengthening restorative practice across Australia.
TOPIC This presentation describes a continuum of restorative practice from Violence to Regeneration using 7 stages of transition. Each stage is described in terms of the behaviours observed by the people involved. In an organisation aiming to deliver and model restorative practice the capabilities of staff are described at three different levels in the organisation: Front line staff / Supervisor / Executive leader Using this continuum as the X axis, a matrix is demonstrated with the players in the system, of people and organisations interacting in the world, as the Y axis. These five players are: – Client/ Community member – Front line staff – Supervisor – Executive leader – Inter-organisation dynamics This matrix is intended to be a useful tool for practitioners to restoratively discuss the system dynamics at work to help make their restorative practice and inter-organisation collaboration more conscious and effective.
