A strong voice and strong support for Victorian Landcare
Stories are being sought for the Winter 2020 (issue #78) issue of the Victorian Landcare and Catchment Management magazine, which is a feature on Landcare and emergency recovery.
Stories for this issue of the Landcare magazine are sought on how Landcare groups and networks have planned for and responded to environmental and social emergencies in their communities. This includes the role that Landcare has played in supporting and enabling local communities and landowners to respond to, recover from, and plan for emergencies such as bushfires, droughts, floods, and to also mitigate and adapt to the impact of climate change. We recognise that crisis has long term impacts and articles that reflect on emergencies in the past are welcome.
Readers of the Landcare magazine are keen to learn about the successes of different approaches and projects, as well as what hasn’t worked, and the insights and reflections of your group or network along the way.
Contributions for the Winter 2020 issue need to be sent to the editor by Friday 27 March 2020.
The Landcare magazine fills up with stories very quickly so please get in touch with the editor (Carrie Tiffany) well before the contribution deadline.
