1st International Conference of Landcare Studies - Global Resilience Through Local Self Reliance

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): Nanzan University Institute for Social Ethics

MAIN HOST(S): Australian Landcare International (ALI)

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 05 - 08 Nov 2017 Location: Japan (Nagoya, Aichi) Venue: Kanayama Plaza Hotel

This is the first world gathering of landcare academics and practitioners to discuss the theories, practice and pragmatics of the 'landcare field' and the role of landcare, localism, self-reliance, sustainability, rural and regional resilience and post-emergency and disaster recovery, for application globally.

The conference is being organised by Nanzan University Institute for Social Ethics, and co-hosted by Australian Landcare International.

Hosted in Nagoya, Japan it has been timed to coincide with World Tsunami Awareness Day following a tour of affected areas in 2016 where community activities post disaster were identified as beiing very 'landcare' in their approach.

Speakers include:

Dr Joseph Runzo-Inada, Dr Tomomi Maekawa, Dr Kazuki Kagohashi (Japan), Prof Yvonne Everett (USA); Joseph Tanui (Kenya); Dr Nick Edgar (NZ); Dr Andrés Arnalds (Iceland); Prof Andrew Campbell, Dr Paul Martin, Dr Lisa Robins, Prof Stewart Lockie, Andrea Mason, Dr Ross Colliver, Megan Rowlatt, (Australia) and other key thinkers. The lineup brings together a forum with an incredible depth of expertise on Landcare.

They are keen to share knowledge, to ensure the continued development of Landcare as a global model, and able to assist with the growing challenges that are required by communities across the globe.

There will be pre- and post-conference tours to sites, with discussions and guidance from community leaders working on a range of post-disaster and more ‘regular’ Landcare activities.
