About the Conference
With opportunities to learn about the latest trends and technology driving the industry, network with peers, or take part in robust discussion, there’s something for every Landcarer at the 2018 National Landcare Conference.
This year’s theme is ‘Landcare – Building a Better Tomorrow’.
Four streams will be available covering:
- Sustainable Agriculture – Innovation and Conservation in a Changing Landscape
- Community in Action – Grassroots with a Purpose
- Partnerships – Collaboration for Successful Outcomes
- Environment – Improving and Protecting our Natural Assets
The program will be released soon, for more information visit the Program page.
Sustainable Agriculture – Innovation and Conservation in a Changing Landscape
Farmers manage over half of the Australian landscape, and, in order to ensure a better tomorrow, innovation and conservation are critical for managing land and water assets. This stream will focus on how agriculture is adapting to an ever increasing range of challenges, including climate change, and, how Landcare is developing and implementing innovative farming practices to sustainably manage our productive natural assets.
Environment – Improving and Protecting our Natural Assets
Australia’s natural resources are unique, irreplaceable and finite. As stewards of the Australian landscape we are obligated to develop innovative and diverse approaches to protect our natural assets for a better tomorrow. This stream will demonstrate how various Indigenous, Bushcare, Coastcare and other Landcare community groups are contributing to successfully meet these challenges.
Community in Action – Grassroots with a Purpose
Community participation is at the heart of Landcare. This stream will showcase the achievements of individual Landcare community groups and projects that demonstrate the value delivered from investing in communities.
Partnerships – Collaboration for Successful Outcomes
The significant local knowledge, experience and commitment within the grassroots Landcare movement is a proven valuable resource. This stream will focus on successful partnerships that leverage collaboration and investment for greater impact.
Experience firsthand local natural resource management across Queensland, through a number of field trips to sites and projects. The full schedules will be released soon.
We look forward to welcoming you to one of the fantastic field trips on offer.
