Inspiration from community at the 2019 WA State NRM and Coastal Conference
The Western Australian NRM and Coastal communities came together amongst the beautiful natural gardens of Edith Cowan University, Joondalup from 1– 4 October for the 2019 WA State NRM and Coastal Conference.
Hosted by the WA Landcare Network, the Conference was ground breaking in important ways. It demonstrated how important it is to have a conference hosted by the community, aiming to network and motivate the community as well as all levels of government, researchers and business. It highlighted that the community is essential in leading change, and in showing that change is possible with the support of all other sectors.

The key highlight of this inspiring Conference was that Aboriginal voices were strong, calling for greater collaboration and support for Aboriginal led initiatives. This culminated in Conference delegates voting to support the Uluru Statement of the Heart in the closing plenary session.
