USQ Women's Network has made valuable links with other groups in Toowoomba.
Householders Option to Protect the Environment Inc (HOPE)
HOPE aims to raise awareness of, and encourage active participation in, waste minimisation and the conservation of energy and resources. The USQ Women's Network agrees with these aims and has the intention of raising environmental issues on campus at USQ.
Earlier this year the Women's Network held a lunchtime forum with representatives of the USQ Envinomental Management Committee. We agreed to follow up on the concerns of women across the USQ campuses in relation to the environment. Please read our submission to the EMC.
