Create a connected online Landcare community
Imagine if there was a way of bringing the tens of thousands of people involved in Landcare across the country together to collaborate and connect – anytime, anywhere. Imagine a vibrant online community developed specifically for the people who care for our land and water – a place where you can connect with like-minded people, get involved in discussions or ask questions. Landcarer is a place where you can connect with people who share your passion.
Rohan Antao is the Innovation and Technology Manager at Landcare Australia, and this is exactly what he imagined. Rohan lives and breathes digital technology, and believes that it can bring people closer together and make their lives easier.
“I had a vision of creating a thriving and connected online community for the Landcare movement – and that’s where Landcarer came from,” he explains.
“It’s all about community and collaboration, and open to anyone involved with Landcare, Bushcare, Friends of, Coastcare, Swampcare, Dunecare, and any other environmental community group. You can register at www.landcarer.com.au, and collaborate with me on the platform’s ongoing development.”
Once signed up to Landcarer, users can set up a community group, share stories or events, connect with others, or check out a webinar or podcast. You can even manage your group membership renewal online through Landcarer.
“The development of Landcarer is ongoing. I’d really love to hear from groups about what challenges they face in their day-to-day operations, because there could easily be online solutions I could develop to help overcome them,” Rohan adds.
“I want to work with groups on the ground to make sure that Landcarer is delivering a set of digital tools that are valuable, and can save a group either time or money, or both!”
Landcarer is a place where you can connect with people who share your passion, and while you’re there you can let Rohan know what you’d like to see on the platform in the future.
