Conference streams

Abstracts are invited on the following conference streams.

Effective monitoring and measuring | How we measure and what we measure tend to be unrecognised or undervalued

Changing behaviour | Environmental practitioners urgently need to find effective methods to bring about changes in attitudes and behaviour that are threatening environmental sustainability

Communicating science | In this age of ‘alternative facts’ communicating real science is critical

Teaming up | We need to stand together and pool our knowledge and resources to develop wicked solutions

Building Resilience | Implementing and incorporating resilience is the start of a journey

Strategic thinking | Strategic thinking requires an approach that enables multi-disciplinary, multi-agency and community involvement – providing for processes and environmental outcomes that are wider than originally envisaged

Commercial sector involvement for good environmental outcomes | The commercial sector may help solve wicked problems that have traditionally been the responsibility of government.
