Bridging science, people and the environment
The Peter Cullen Trust exists to improve Australia’s water and environmental management by fostering great leaders and transformational conversations. We work towards a world where water and the environment are managed sustainably and equitably.
About the Trust
With the support of its donors and sponsors, the Trust delivers programs that develop leaders who improve Australia’s water and environment management. The Trust is not politically aligned and is neither an advocate nor a lobbying organisation. Through developing leaders in the water sector and raising the level of discourse – by facilitating, convening and enabling – the Trust empowers others to be effective communicators and advocates.
Bridging issue #52
In writing this introduction to Bridging, I was reminded of the important leadership role of Fellows and Friends in advocating for science, evidence-informed policy reform and resources for transformative change in how we manage water and the environment. Australia is at a crossroad in water and biodiversity policy. We have a window of opportunity to influence the reform agenda for the next decade, or longer. The late, the Hon John Kerin AO, credited Peter Cullen as having a pivotal role in placing water on the national agenda.
We have an obligation to show the same courage.
Bridging Issue #51
Best wishes to all leaders for a productive 2023. May your leadership inspire, speak truth to power and pay it forward. Already this year is shaping as a critical year for your voice.
Bridging Issue #50
November in Canberra has traditionally been a special time for the Trust. Meeting new Fellows at the Leadership Program Graduation and reconnecting with the family of Fellows and the wider Peter Cullen community is inspiring, regenerative and an opportunity for personal reflection. Peter would have been very proud of the leaders supported in his name.
