Go Local: Sustainable Futures Regional Internship provides you with the opportunity to gain experience within key regional Western Australian industries and communities, by equipping you with active citizenship skills, sustainable transdisciplinary innovation methodologies, along with considered knowledge of regional planning, governance, Indigenous Australian ways of being, doing and knowing, and other diverse community needs to co-create innovative sustainable futures for regional Western Australia.
Go Local Sustainable Futures Internships do not have any tertiary prerequisites and are not bound by faculty or area of study. This is instead driven by the students’ interest and the current industry focus, including (but not limited to):
- Urban development
- Culture and arts
- Tech, space and manufacturing
- Health and community
- Primary industry and food
- Resources and energy
Before taking part in an intensive placement in regional WA, hosted by local, state or privately owned organisations, selected students will complete two core foundational units and an On Country learning experience and develop capabilities in:
- Sustainable transdisciplinary Innovation methodologies
- United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
- Indigenous knowledge systems thinking
Participating students will be able to design their individual or group projects and will be assessed through reflections and their final project presentation.
A Go Local Sustainable Futures Regional Internship may contribute up to 100 credit points to your degree (degree-specific advice and confirmation should be sought from the faculty for eligibility).
Please note: while the program is being launched, we are keen to hear from students who would like to participate in all 100 credits, as well as students who may only be interested/have space to complete some of the units on offer.
