Australian Awards Fellowship Program   
February – March 2018

Resilient leaders: Leading in challenging contexts

The Edmund Rice Centre is delighted to be running this Australian Government funded Awards Fellowships Program in conjunction with the University of Sydney. The PCP-delivered program, Resilient leaders: Leading in challenging contexts, is part of the Federal Government's Australia Awards. The Awards offer the next generation of global leaders in the Pacific region an opportunity to undertake study, research and professional development which will help them contribute to development in their home countries. 

Eight leaders from Kiribati, four from non government organisations and four educators, are participating in the 8-week academic program which commenced on 1 February.

The Program is structured around academic and practical modules with workshops on the science of climate change, climate justice, media, advocacy and, of course, leadership. There is a field trip to Canberra and many opportunities to address politicians and community groups . This is a great opportunity to strengthen leadership in Kiribati and for the ERC and for the PCP to grow its understanding of Kiribati.
