As the large-scale solar industry ramps up in Australia, the Clean Energy Council, supported by ARENA, presents a workshop for professionals in the large-scale solar industry on effective approaches for building sustained community support for large-scale solar developments.
With expert guidance from social licence consultancy Futureye, participants will:
- explore why the choice of engagement strategy is central to the success of any major project
- capture learnings from social licence case studies from a range of industries
- understand how to manage and reduce the risks of negative community reactions
- define approaches for building positive and sustainable relationships with communities.

This is a free event for large-scale solar industry professionals, but places are limited.
