Landcare Victoria Inc., is preparing to release the landcare movement’s inaugural 10-year plan next week, at the same time, it warns the future of community landcare is at risk.

The Plan, to be launched on Monday, 20 November, sets out a blueprint for landcare’s key role in creating biodiverse, productive and resilient Victorian landscapes.

Preparing to launch the Plan, Landcare Victoria Inc. Chair Jane Carney said: “I’m really proud of the Plan and the role we can play, but we have to address the fact that we don’t have the funding security we need.

“We have an army of tens of thousands of volunteers right across the state, but without funding certainty for our 80 local facilitators and 10 regional coordinators, landcare’s future is at risk.”

The plan will be launched at a free public webinar at 11am on Monday, 20 November. The webinar is free, but RSVPs are essential via Humanitix.

Australia’s infrastructure assumptions must change in an energised climate

AUSTRALIA, NOVEMBER 29: For several decades, the scientific community has sounded the alarm about the potential impacts of climate change. However, despite the warnings, the repercussions are becoming evident in the damage inflicted on societies and the critical infrastructure upon which we rely. The current challenge lies in our reliance on outdated assumptions in the design and building of infrastructure, say energy transition experts at Partners in Performance. To address this, a paradigm shift is needed in the way essential systems are planned and fortified against the unpredictable challenges posed by increasingly volatile and extreme weather events. The urgency of…
