The Green Army is a hands-on, practical, grassroots environmental action programme that supports local environment and heritage conservation projects across Australia.
Green Army information sessions
Community information sessions on the Green Army Programme will be held in each state and territory during February 2015.
Attendees will have the opportunity to talk with representatives from the Australian Government Department of the Environment about the Programme. Those interested in becoming a project sponsor or participant are welcome to attend.
How do I get involved?
To get involved in the Green Army as a participant read the participant fact sheet for more information on what’s involved, and contact a Service Provider operating in your state or territory.
Projects may be carried out across urban, regional and remote Australia on public land, Indigenous-held lands, or private land where there is a clear community and environmental and heritage benefit.
Service Providers are responsible for recruiting participants, managing work health and safety, providing training, paying allowances, overseeing project management and ensuring participants develop valuable skills that will help their transition into the workforce.
