Natural Resource Management Webinar Series
10 topics - over 21 webinars in July and August 2020
The University of Melbourne has launched a dedicated NRM Webinar Series.
Natural resource managers understand the challenges of making the best decisions for whichever natural system they work in. They also understand the challenges of getting pithy, authoritative summaries of the latest science that they can apply in those decisions. This webinar series is designed to help managers better understand the systems that they work on, and ultimately make better decisions. It is also designed to introduce managers to systems that they don’t know much about.
The program draws on the huge experience of researchers and teachers from across the University of Melbourne. The webinars cover broad principles of ecosystems, down to specific new tools for NRM. Topics stretch from the atmosphere, through forests, soil and rivers to the ocean. Others look in more detail at specific processes such as climate change, fires, revegetation, and invasive species; and they don’t ignore the social context in which managers work.
The webinar program is delivered across ten topics, with each topic covered in two one-hour webinars. (Three webinars for Bushfires). They are designed for managers, and anybody interested in natural resources, to enjoy over their lunch break.
Each webinar will involve a presentation and a discussion time. You can join in them all, or dip in and out for topics that are of more interest. Everybody involved is excited to offer this distillation of NRM science to colleagues across Australia.
Note: If you cannot watch the webinars live, you will be emailed a recording so that you can watch the webinar in your own time.
