Partnership forum? Partnership potential!

Central West Local Land Services is partnering with Landcare at the regional and State level to deliver a Partnership Forum at Lazy River Estate, Dubbo on Tuesday 28 February 2017.

Central West Local Land Services Regional Landcare Facilitator Karin Stark said the Intent of the forum is to foster partnerships and also to create meaningful opportunities for enabling large scale social, agricultural and environmental impact,

“Landcare is a grassroots organisation, grounded by like-minded community members that has survived many changes in politics, funding and even climate.

The Partnership Forum is an opportunity for all those working in the areas of healthy environments, communities and sustainable agriculture to meet Landcare groups and explore ways of working together” Ms Stark said.

The day will see organisations such as Greening Australia presenting on their work including practical examples of successful partnerships with Landcare groups.

Social enterprise Cultivate Farms founder Sam Marwood will also be in attendance, speaking about his work in getting young people onto the land by linking them with investors.

While the morning includes an overview of Landcare, showcasing successful partnerships and tips for making the most of partnerships, the afternoon leads into sessions which will see attendees break off into themes of their choice to tease out opportunities for collaboration.

Registrations received to date include state and local government, not-for-profit organisations and private enterprise.  
Due to the overwhelming response, remaining places are very limited.

Registration are essential and will remain open until Thursday 16th February - act now to avoid disappointment.

For further information or to register, contact Karin Stark, on 0428 943 781 or via email Karin.Stark@lls.nsw.gov.au

This project is supported by Central West Local Land Services, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme and Landcare NSW.
