In order to develop and implement initiatives RCE-GWS have formed a number of smaller working groups to address and create projects around our regional sustainability challenges. The leaders of each working group (WG) are vital in the structure of the RCE governance. These working groups are open for all RCE-GWS members and associate members to join and participate in.

This WG has already delivered a number of successful projects. This year's focus will be on TAFE WSi 'Get Smart for Small Business' seminars, as well as building an engaged network of SME representatives to join the group and hoping to achieve effective communications, information dissemination, short course development and a range of sustainable initiatives.
