Landcare NSW has been busy working on some exciting opportunities for the NSW Landcare community. Coming up are:
Landcare NSW EOI for a revegetation project through Transport NSW – closes 7 April
The funds for this grant have come from Transport NSW and are specifically for tree planting in regions impacted by last year’s fires. The Landcare NSW T4NSW Fund aims to assist Landcare NSW Member groups in re-vegetation projects that are within a 50km radius of bushfire affected areas throughout the 2019/2020 season.
Landcare NSW is implementing a project to review our governance system and ‘connect up’ the many elements that make up the Landcare NSW community. Landcare NSW’s Governance Project is being facilitated by Randall Pearce of Think Insight Advice. Randall consults to not-for-profit organisations across Australia and has worked with Landcare NSW since 2014.
Work began in late 2020 with extensive research to understand the current system and identify areas for reform. There has been in depth discussion with the Council of Landcare NSW and engagement with the Landcare community via distribution of a Discussion Paper and online meetings. Engagement will continue in the coming months to ensure changes are made with the knowledge and support of the Landcare community. Any questions, please reach out and email us at email@example.com
Land Management and Conservation Economic Stimulus proposal
Landcare NSW has added our community’s voices to a 100-strong coalition of land management organisations calling for Federal Government investment in a land management and environmental stimulus package, post-COVID19. This was led by the Pew Charitable Trust who have done an incredible job over the past year. According to ‘The Working With Nature’ report just released, a $500 million investment will deliver thousands of full-time jobs and $1.2 billion in long-term economic benefits.
We would like to thank the many of you who have written letters and talked to Federal Members to seek their support. You can read more here https://landcarensw.org.au/media-release-stimulus-package-would-restore-landscapes-and-fuel-job-creation/
