#NATURE LAWS COMMUNITY WORKSHOPS – JOIN THE CONVERSATION

Dialogue-template-v1-01

From February to May 2016, Places You Love is co-hosting a series of community co-designed workshops that reimagine the laws that protect nature and support life.

Why? Our social, economic and ecological wellbeing relies on the health of our country’s land, air, water and wildlife. But the current laws, the EPBC Act, are failing us. We need a new vision for nature protection – strong laws to protect life: our air, water, wildlife and the places we love.

An independent Australian Panel of Experts in Environmental Law are in the process of reviewing the way nature, wildlife and people are cared for in Australia to see where improvements can be made. Now they call on your ideas, feedback and support to help shape the solutions needed for stronger nature protection across Australia.

Come along to the workshop to:

• Share your stories and experiences around nature protection in your area, helping bring real life experiences to the discussion
• Find out why we all need to support a next generation of national laws
• Test the thinking of others and help generate ideas and solutions
• Learn how to continue the conversation and and movement to ensure the adoption of a plan for stronger nature protection

All workshops are free to attend, with food and beverages provided. Bring friends and family along – the more the merrier.
