Farmers, Landcarers and community groups with a story to tell are being encouraged to submit their ideas for an opportunity to present at the 2022 NSW Landcare and Local Land Services Conference in Tweed Heads.
The conference theme is ‘Rethink, Renew, Recharge’ with presenters and workshop hosts being sought to share their experiences of recovering from natural disasters, as well as their ideas for creating a more resilient and sustainable future.
Local Land Services Board Acting Chair, Allison Harker said this is a fantastic opportunity for passionate individuals and community groups from across the state to present and discuss their insights with the broader Landcare community.
“Throughout NSW, we know there are incredible projects being carried out that are building more resilient, sustainable and productive landscapes and farming systems,” Ms Harker said.
“This conference is the perfect place to showcase them, so we can all learn from each other.
“Whether it’s regenerative agriculture, integrated pest management, or innovative ways to capitalise on the emerging natural markets like carbon farming, we want to hear from you.”
Interested presenters can find out more information and download their expression of interest form at www.nswlandcareconference.com.au/presentations, with submissions closing on Tuesday, 31 August 2021.
Landcare NSW Chair, Stephanie Cameron encouraged Landcarers from across the state to submit an expression of interest to share, learn and connect as a community.
“Given the recent challenges we have all faced and are still facing now, we are looking for presentations and workshops that showcase resilience, as well as how we can rethink, renew and recharge to create a sustainable future,“ Ms Cameron said.
“We encourage anyone involved in Landcare, natural resource management, sustainable agriculture, resilience and community empowerment to apply.”
Presenters will join the program alongside Resilience NSW Commissioner, and former Rural Fire Service Commissioner, Shane Fitzsimmons, who will be making the keynote presentation.
The Conference will take place on 15–17 March at the Mantra Twin Towns in Tweed Heads. Tickets will go on sale later this year.
