RBMS Reading Group – now in Geelong!
The River Basin Management Society is pleased to invite you to the inaugural RBMS Geelong reading group on the afternoon of Thursday 12th November. The plan for this and future Geelong reading groups is to have a relaxed discussion about an interesting, topical, controversial or informative topic over a beverage or two.
We invite you to join us to discuss a paper published earlier this year on the role of engagement in successful restoration projects (link to pdf here). Our venue will be Little Creatures Geelong Brewery, 4:30 – 5:30pm on Thursday 12th of November.
Meaningful public participation and open communication when delivering catchment restoration programs are vital in ensuring the success of a project, but as this paper explores, spatial and temporal variables can influence how successful a restoration project can be. Using a large scale restoration project in the US, this paper discusses a number of important social dimensions that should be considered when implementing restoration projects.
It would be great to hear from our members (and anyone new who would like to attend) about their experiences in engaging the myriad of stakeholders that can be involved when implementing catchment related programs.
Hope to see you there!
