Are you looking for new strategies to protect your local environment?

Join us for a 1 day workshop in Brisbane on 30th September that explores new legal and campaigning approaches that protect our local communities

All around the world, communities are fighting to protect their local  ecosystems and communities from the destructive impacts of coal seam gas, coal mining, logging and other harmful activities.  This workshop offers a unique opportunity to hear from activists and lawyers, from Australia, the USA and Ecuador who are using new organising frameworks to successfully protect their natural and human communities.   It will include information about new  approaches in the USA and other parts of the world, which  use organizing frameworks and local legislation to assert  community rights and the Rights of Nature.  Morning presentations will be followed by time in the afternoon for interactive discussions and break out groups, to assist with the development of new partnerships and collaborative projects.

Speakers and panellists include:

This workshop will be of interest to community organisations, local councils, regulators, students, academics and anyone interested in the future of environmental governance.
