National Landcare Conference - Sydney
On behalf of the community, the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) invites you to join us at the National Landcare Conference 2012.
This year the three day event will be held from 3 to 5 September 2012 during Landcare week at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre Darling Harbour. This conference is a great opportunity to bring together individual Landcarers, Landcare and community groups, regional bodies, natural resource management (NRM) practitioners, international Landcare members and Australian Government representatives.
The conference theme for 2012 is ‘Landcare - the future in our hands’. With a growing interest in and concern for sustainable living and food security, the Landcare community is at the forefront of helping to ensure that Australia can move confidently towards a smart and resilient agricultural and environmental future.
The 2012 conference will provide delegates with an opportunity to learn about and share innovative practice approaches and solutions as well as opportunities to renew contacts, build new networks, share ideas and discuss challenges within the wider Landcare community.
The National Landcare Awards will be held during the conference and all finalists will present on their award recognised projects. As a conference attendee you will have the opportunity to speak directly to the nominees and presenters through question and answer sessions.
Speakers from across the country are invited to discuss topics suggested by you, from science and innovation to community engagement and participation.
In addition to keynote speakers, the program also includes field trips, workshops and poster presentations, which represent a broad range of interests as well as social events, such as the 2012 National Landcare Awards Gala Dinner– making the National Landcare Conference 2012 an event not to be missed.
