Hal Greenham – Principal Consultant

BA (Economics, Env. Studies) Monash, BSc (Psychology) ANU

Since the early 1990’s Hal Greenham has been facilitating action on behalf of the environment, taking leadership roles in the Victorian Cross Campus Environment Network and the national Students & Sustainability Conferences.  Since completing his studies in economics, environmental studies (BA, Monash 1997) and psychology (BSc, ANU 2006) Hal has consolidated his interest in the interaction between personal and organisational factors in creating effective change strategies.

Recent experiences include developing and facilitating the “greenhouse innovations” component of the forthcoming City of Kingston Greenhouse and Energy Management Strategy (2010-2014).  This brought together key change agents with relevant managers up to CEO level in an empowering context to progress innovations in strategic planning, energy and waste management.

On behalf of Manningham City Council Hal developed the successful $8m “Melbourne WaSSH” (Water Security through Stormwater Harvesting) funding application, facilitating collaboration amongst 16 Councils throughout eastern Melbourne.  Once rolled out, the Melbourne WaSSH project will treat and reuse around 500ML of fit-for-purpose water annually whilst delivering significant integrated water management outcomes and enhanced regional cooperation on local water security.

More recently Hal facilitated Manningham City Council, Melbourne Water and Yarra Valley Water through an ambitious stakeholder engagement and multi-criteria analysis / decision making process.  The brief involved assisting the parties to go beyond their traditional roles and organisational boundaries in the scoping and development of water infrastructure, to fulfil their aspiration for genuine best practice and leadership in the Doncaster Hill PAC redevelopment.

When away from the office Hal walks the talk as a cofounder of the “Urban Temple” sustainable intentional community in Brunswick and is a Community Leader in the MEFL Zero Carbon Moreland campaign.  In 2009 he created the Inspiring the New Earth series of workshops with the vision of providing inspiration and inner resources for social and environmental change agents.
