In addition to the regular program we will offer workshops on Monday afternoon (2 September 2019, from 1330-1700).

WORKSHOPS WILL BE HELD IN THE FORESTRY TUTORIAL ROOM AT THE FENNER SCHOOL OF ENVIRONMENT AND SOCIETY, FRANK FENNER BUILDING 141, ANU

The workshops are guided towards building skills in early career participants of all backgrounds but should also appeal to more established attendees. Indeed, we encourage the participation of more established attendees to facilitate and/or share their experiences and knowledge to make the workshops successful. The actual program will depend on the number of attendees.

The workshops, including afternoon coffee, will be free of charge. Spots are limited to 40 participants per workshop and will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. To secure your spot indicate your attendance today.

Workshop 1 (1330-1500):

Career development and leadership in rangelands

This workshop aims to provide early career conference attendees an overview of different career paths associated with rangeland science, governance and industry, and how to develop the skills to be an effective leader in rangelands. Attendees will learn about the steps needed to reach those paths, have the opportunity to ask questions of representatives from science, governance and industry, and to work in small groups discussing key skills and approaches associated with different career paths.

Workshop 2 (1530-1700):

Interface between policy and rangeland stakeholders

Taking advantage of our physical proximity to the Capital, this workshop will focus on demystifying the mutually beneficial exchange between policymakers and Rangeland stakeholders. Topics will include a discussion on the types of information useful for policymakers and how we might convey that information so that it can be applied directly. Additional discussion will focus on how we might establish relationships in politics to communicate our needs as stewards of the Australian Rangelands.

Note: the above two workshops are the final selected workshops and are no longer subject to change.
