The LARC Program offers all participants (residential programs or forums) the opportunity to attend a series of engaging webinars that are being developed as another learning opportunity and resource. Each webinar will either provide practical and lived examples of some of the concepts investigated in the LARC Program with guests from across a wide range of sectors, or specific “how to” information regarding some of the scenarios that participants may find themselves in their lives, work and communities.

Webinar 5: Regional Wellbeing

What does wellbeing really mean and how can it be better achieved?

We know wellbeing is important yet with the ever-increasing demands in our lives, it can often be tricky to prioritise and nail that work life balance. Yet with the challenges endured across our regions, in our communities and our lives, it’s more important than ever.  

To help the process, this webinar will explore how wellbeing is defined, actioned and measured to know that we are actually making a difference, in our lives and our community. What may be wellbeing for one person may not be the same for another.
