Business and Education Program Planning Facilitation

Barwon South West Waste and Resource Recycling Group was responsible for facilitating an integrated approach to regional waste planning and management and resource recovery services in the Barwon and South West regions. On 1 July 2022, BSWWRRG was consolidated with other regional WRRGs to form Recycling Victoria.

In 2020 Jen facilitated a workshop with the BSWWRRG board and staff to plan their priorities for the next 2 years. The adaptive workshop process needed to incorporate the knowns and unknowns associated with the Victorian government’s Circular Economy Policy, which was released on the day of the workshop.

The success of this session led to Jen being asked to run a similar Business Planning session in 2021 to plan for the final year of BSWWRRG’s operation and to position it for incorporation into Recycling Victoria, the new statewide waste and resource recovery authority.

Later in 2021, Jen was asked to facilitate a strategic online session of BSWWRRG’s partners to identify education priorities for the final months of the Group’s tenure.
