Stewardship of Country: a national seminar series from the Royal Societies of Australia

Stewardship of Country imageThe Society is pleased to announce this forthcoming series of three webinars to be presented by the Royal Societies of Australia during October–December 2020. Stewardship of Country provides an opportunity to exchange views with knowledgeable practitioners and experts in a national conversation on managing Australia’s most valuable resource – its landscape.

Stewardship of Country will examine issues relating to the long-term management of Australia’s landscape. It creates an opportunity to discuss and identify immediate and long-term goals for responsible and improved engagement with country, and to define possible solutions for common areas of concern as we plan for an unpredictable future.

Stewardship of Country is envisioned as three virtual events. The first will focus on where we are now, setting the scene across a range of disciplinary areas, the second on available and potential mechanisms and strategies, and the third on practical ways to bring the multidisciplinary threads together and achieve our goals of sustainable improvements to landscape management.

The series will consider a broad range of themes including sustainable land use, regenerative agriculture practice, what can be achieved with our soils, the future of Australia’s climate and the importance of local and Indigenous knowledge with an emphasis on policy change informed by science.

The goal of Stewardship of Country is to create positive change and build a holistic platform on which to develop resilience in agriculture and land use and define best practice in research, education and the use of new technologies. It aims to bridge Indigenous, agricultural, environmental and civic perspectives.

Information about the speakers and how to register will be published as an event notice on this website in coming weeks.
