GER to host high-level conference in Brisbane in October

The Great Eastern Ranges has just announced details of a conference set for October in Brisbane, which will bring together leading local and international experts for a two-day, high-level event.

The Connecting People…Connecting Nature conference, to be held October 18-19 at the Queensland Multicultural Centre, will be an opportunity to hear from key connectivity conservation experts from Australia and around the world, and to share knowledge, tools and lessons learnt with dozens of organisations working in large landscape conservation.

The conference will take the focus from global context to local action, bringing together industry leaders with on-ground practitioners, researchers, traditional owners, community groups, eNGOs and government agencies.

Keynote speakers include Dr Gary Tabor, founder and president of the Centre for Large Landscape Conservation, and chair of the IUCN WCPA Connectivity Conservation Specialist Group, and Prof Brendan Mackey, director of the Climate Action Beacon at Griffith University, Queensland.

Presentations and Q&A panel sessions will inspire through practical examples of connectivity in action and will cover a diversity of topics around the current state of connectivity, the latest science and best practice, and how to move beyond business-as-usual conservation.

The first day of the conference will be followed directly by an evening networking function held in the foyer area of the Queensland Multicultural Centre.
