Looking At Landcare (5/3/2021) – Landcare Ladies #ChooseToChallenge IWD Webinar

Hi Landcarers

It is my pleasure to be hosting the Landcare Ladies #ChooseToChallenge International Women’s Day Webinar on Monday.

An all-female Landcarer line-up will mark International Women’s Day with the latest instalment of the 2021 Landcare Webinar Series.

Titled #ChoosetoChallenge, the discussion on March 8 at 9am AEDT will feature a diverse panel of Australian women in landcare sharing their knowledge, insights and experiences in the community.

Participants include:

  • Hannah Rice-Hayes | Local Landcare Coordinator, Richmond Landcare Inc & Bush Fruits LGBTIQ + Landcare
  • Elly Wynhoven | founder, sustainable swimwear brand Swim by Elly
  • Karin Stark | founder of the National Renewables in Agriculture Conference and Expo and Director of Farm Renewables Consulting
  • Vee Vian Higgins | Malaysian born landcarer, based in Parkes
  • Angelica Arnott | Biodynamic landholder and landcarer, Boorowa

Throughout #ChoosetoChallenge, these inspiring women will answer questions and discuss topics regarding women in Landcare.

I am looking forward to speaking to these five fabulous women and being inspired as they talk about their challenges and choices that make them who they are, how they fit in the Landcare space and the significance of International Women’s Day to them.

#ChoosetoChallenge is part of the exciting line-up for the 2021 Landcare Webinar Series. After unprecedented demand following last year’s successful run, the 2021 Landcare Webinar Series features key figures from the Landcare community sharing their wealth of knowledge.

These free webinars with representatives from Landcare networks, groups and organisations involved in natural resource management. Topics covered in local climate change action, modern innovation in resource management, successful Landcare strategies beyond Aussie borders and so much more.

The webinar will be shared via the Landcarer platform. You can register to be involved. Links are on our website, Landcare Australia website and via our social media.

Check out our speaker profiles on social media as well. Each of these women, I have crossed paths with in so many different forums. Some through work, privately and two purely through social media.

It is such an honour to bring a piece of the Central West to the National Landcare platform and I hope that you can support us via social media, or be attending on the morning of the event. These sessions can also be watched online after the live event.
