Project Contacts

Community Projects: The following projects have some energy and people behind them already (some are new, some are continuing....) Contact the facilitator directly if you would like to be involved.

 a small group of writers/editors was formed to create regular 'Strengthening Local Communities' articles for our local newspaper. The aim is to profile successful localisation initiatives and ideas from around globe and explore how they might be relevant to the Bellingen Shire. The next steps for this group are to work up some sample articles and approach the newspaper with the idea. Anyone interested in writing and/or editing for this group can contact Melissa via
