Dr Emilie Ens
How has a cross cultural approach to conservation in some of the most remote areas of Australia found success? And how has an understanding of Australia’s Indigenous Cultural Heritage influenced and enhanced conservation methods of local environments?
Dr Donna Houston
How do we place value on heritage in our cities today as we face increasing pressure of population growth and the lack of green and open spaces? And what does it mean to work with inherited heritage in the 21st century?
How are councils, state government agencies and the community working together to make Parramatta River swimmable again by 2025? And why is it important that we take action now towards sustainable management of our natural resources? What benefits will be made for our future and the community?
