Picture: JUSTIN SANSON ALICE Springs will play host to the first Territory Youth Lead Environmental Workshops. It is the first time these workshops are being held in theNT and the only onewill be in Alice Springs. The Oz Green workshops are aimed at 15 to 25 year olds who want to build a sustainable Australia. Young people will discuss the issues concerning them and work together to create solutions and implement those in local communities. Oz Greens program coordinator Gabriel Anderson said: They will get inspiration and motivation to make a difference in their community for a sustainable future. The three-day training sessionwill give participants experience in ecological assessment, lifestyle analysis, critical and creative thinking and goal setting. The Alice Springs Town Council is offering scholarships to pay for three local young people to attend the workshops and help the council tackle local issues. Workshop organisers want 15-25 young people to jump on board but say only 10have signedup to save the environment so far. The workshop will be held at Hamilton Downs Youth Camp from June 17 to 19. Alice suburbs now formally on map By GAVIN KING Olive Pink OFFICIAL changes to place names will soon put new Alice suburbs like Olive Pink, Rose and Carmichael on the map. Central Australia will also fea ture localities like Ross, Ghan and Giles. The changes will be enshrined in law to make service delivery easier for Telstra, emergency services and other agencies. The suburbs will also help with population censuses, national statistics, town planning and map and atlas production. The new suburb names included: Olive Pink formerly the golf course area, from theOlive Pink Botanic Gardens to Stephens Road, named after the famed activist and botanist. Rose south of the Gap, including the Racecourse and OldTimers Village, named after Colonel Lionel Rose. Carmichael between Larapinta and Araluen, named after Ned Carmichael, a member of the first Town Management Board in 1961. Residents now have six weeks to have their say on the proposed names, including established suburbs such as Eastside, Braitling and Larapinta. Lands and Planning Minister Chris Burns said suburbs in towns like Alice and Katherine had no official suburbs. Dr Burns said: All suburbs, towns and localities in the Northern Territory that have not already been officially named will be registered under the Place Names Act. It is proposed that the unofficial names used locally for these areas will be legally defined. Outside the population centres, areas that are currently defined as NT Portions will receive official locality names. A public forum will be held in Alice Springs on June 21 at the council chambers from 7pm to discuss the proposed changes. To view the new suburbs go to www.placenames.nt.gov.au or phone 8999 6440.
