The Proceedings of the Royal Society of Victoria, Volume 133, Part 1 is now available online
This publication features papers from Stewardship of Country, a symposium in three parts presented by the Royal Societies of Australia and Inspiring Victoria.
The series posed the question: who are we becoming, as Australians faced with an increasingly unpredictable and challenging future? The symposium aimed to elevate a broad range of perspectives, generating a discussion on landscape and environmental management that bridges Indigenous, agricultural, scientific, economic and social perspectives with support for practical action and public good.
Webinar recordings and individual presentations delivered as part of Stewardship of Country can be found here.
We do not need to wait until everyone has accepted and understood the obligation of custodianship or until all our laws and institutions are reformed. We can act now, collectively and individually. Every small change we make adds to all the others — forming, eventually, big changes. We can act collaboratively, immediately magnifying the changes any one of us can make.’
