Wildwon and the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) have teamed up to provide these workshops to accelerate the success of growing ideas and help people turn concepts into impactful, viable and successful projects.

Sally Hill, co-founder of Wildwon said having a great idea is a start but taking an idea from concept to reality is a process that needs to be carefully considered, mapped out and worked through.

“The workshops will teach participants how to shape their idea, find finance and share their story,” said Ms Hill.

OEH’s Deputy Chief Executive Ian Hunter said there is undeniable environmental talent and entrepreneurial tenacity in the people of regional NSW.

“When these strengths are combined and coupled with a desire to enhance communities and natural environments, great things can happen,” Mr Hunter said.

“We want to provide entrepreneurs and environmental groups with essential skills and knowledge to initiate projects in their community.
