The future of Victoria’s native forests – a public symposium
Thursday, 26 October | 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
This public symposium will explore options and issues for securing the future of Victoria’s native forests.
We will convene scientists, land managers and First Nations expertise to explore and discuss perspectives informed by scholarship, cultural practices and ecological values. These researchers, policy makers and knowledge holders will address bushfire prevention, recovering threatened species, sustaining human health and wellbeing, and adapting to the regional impacts of climate change. We seek to understand how the end of logging operations will change the way native forests are managed, the challenges of future management, and the opportunities that this land-use change provides.
The program will be conducted over two days: from 8:30am to 5:00pm on Thursday 26th October, and from 8:30 to 1:00pm on Friday 27th October.
Presented by the Alluvium Foundation in partnership with the Royal Society of Victoria, the Victorian National Parks Association, and Friends of the Earth Melbourne.
