This FDIB will provide participating faculty from institutions of higher education with a greater understanding of the green business practices, economic policies, legal and political structures that have led Australia to become one of the leaders in this field.  The trip will also feature cultural events, focused on the Aboriginal people and the wildlife. The intended audience is business faculty interested in improving their knowledge of green business and sustainability or incorporating green business content into their curriculum and/or research activities. We hope you will consider this opportunity.
The registration fee of $3950 includes hotel accommodations (based on double occupancy), airfare from Melbourne to Sydney, ground transportation, breakfasts, most lunches, occasional dinners, site visits, materials, and cultural events.  Participants or their sponsors are responsible for all other expenses including RT international airfare, most dinners, incidentals, passport and visa fees. 
There will also be a spouse / guest program available.  Spouses and adult guests (at least 21 years old) will lodge with their faculty sponsor and the program fee includes all transportation (including airfare from Melbourne to Sydney) and cultural programs.  The spouse / guest fee is $2950.
In addition we will have 2 optional activities.  These are the Penguin March on Phillip Island ($50/person) and the Sydney Bridge Climb at Twilight ($275 / person).
