Stewardship of Country – From Past to Future

Seeking a new model for the management of Australian landscapes so our natural systems are conserved and regenerated for future generations.

Join the Royal Societies of Australia and Inspiring Victoria for the final in this series of three webinars, aiming to generate a discussion of landscape and environmental stewardship that bridges Indigenous, agricultural, scientific, economic and social perspectives, with supporting ideas for practical action and public good. We seek to contribute to a new model for the management of the Australian landscape so that our natural systems are conserved and regenerated for the benefits of future generations.

From Past to Future – Australian Stewardship of Country

This final webinar in the series takes us to a broad view of the past to define our approach to the future. We range from the natural history of our continent’s diverse landscapes and species, confronting the cultural and systemic responses needed to redefine and strengthen our relationships with the living world and better adapt to the challenges facing us as a nation in the near future.
