Project overview

Hepburn Z-NET is a collaborative partnership bringing together community groups, organisations, community members, experts and council to shift the Hepburn Shire to zero-net energy by 2025 and zero-net emissions by 2030.

As a community transition, having good governance structures is key to building and delivering a zero-net emission transition plan that represents the needs of our community. Under a Collaborative Governance model, members of the Z-NET Roundtable guide delivery and Council plays a key role in the group.

Z-NET Roundtable

Thank you to everyone that applied to be part of the Z-NET Roundtable welcomes local and diverse. Expressions of interest closed on 4 November 2023 and applicants will hear back in late November.

Next steps

A selection committee made up of three current members of the Z-NET Roundtable will consider all applications and present their recommendations to the 23 November Roundtable meeting for endorsement.

All successful applicants will be contacted and their position confirmed by Tuesday 28 November. From there an induction pack will be sent out ahead of the induction meeting on Thursday 7 December 2023.
