What is the Science to Policy Leadership Program?

A transformational program designed to create long-term impact and change for Australia’s water and environment managers.

Our Science to Policy Leadership Program enables Australia’s future water and environment leaders to develop their leadership capabilities, communication skills and ability to drive change. The Program is designed to have transformational, sustainable impact; not just temporary inspiration.

This highly regarded program:

  • transforms participant thinking and improves their individual effectiveness in a team;
  • provides practical tools and insights to inspire action for positive change;
  • develops insight, knowledge and critical thinking skills around flexible and adaptive leadership styles;
  • connects participants with others who value life-long learning in a national network of supportive peers.


 “You are completely immersed, it enables you to break down barriers and this is about working through the process together. I’ve got more out of this two weeks than anything I’ve ever done, ever”.

Only outstanding candidates are selected to undertake this remarkable journey which will significantly improve their clarity, confidence, shared vision and strategic capability, enhancing their opportunities to take up leadership roles and proactively contribute to a sustainable world. It challenges participants to stretch themselves beyond their current boundaries and realise their potential to make a real difference in their chosen water related careers.

Successful participants in the program graduate as Fellows of the Peter Cullen Water and Environment Trust. Fellows benefit from the Trust’s high-level networks and the opportunity to engage in structured mentoring, continuing development, practical engagement, activities and ongoing support.
