Landcare remembers Bob Hawke
Vale The Hon. Bob Hawke AC. "When the earth is spoiled, humanity and all living things are diminished. We have taken too much from the earth and given back too little. It's time to say enough is enough. Today's announcements won't solve everything. But with the right mix of political commitment and community support we can ensure that our country is simply the best in the world. This is our country, our future." - Bob Hawke launching the ‘Decade of Landcare’, 20 July 1989. Landcare Victoria Inc. endorses the memorial statements from Landcare Australia and the National Landcare Network, acknowledging the vision of the late Bob Hawke for committing the Australian Government to support ‘Landcare’.
