The Peter Cullen Water and Environmental Trust bridges the gap between people, science, and the environment. It was founded on the philosophy that, to improve Australia’s water and environmental management, we need to enhance the link between good science and effective policy making. This requires effective leadership skills, particularly around communicating in ways that bring science to life and make it relevant for politicians and policy makers. It also requires respectful, informed and meaningful collaboration which is the key to responsible and sustainable water management, now and in the future.
The Peter Cullen Water and Environmental Trust aims to respect the legacy of Peter Cullen by working towards our Strategic Goals:
• Strengthen the ‘bridge’ between science and policy in the management of Australia’s water and environment.
• Build leadership and communication capacity in Australia’s water and environmental managers, and nourish active cross- sectoral networks.
• Foster informed and ongoing discussion and debate about the future management of Australia’s water and environment resources.
The Trust is not an advocacy organisation.
