Carbon, Emissions and Ag Forum

Thursday 16 November, 2023
9:00 AM-3:30 PM
Location: Country Club Hotel, 18 High street, Yea

Yea River Catchment Landcare Group presents this workshop:

Globally, as countries commit to carbon neutral targets, agriculture is in the spotlight as both a contributor to emissions, and a solution for carbon drawdown. This forum will present information about the global scene, market pull, opportunities for productivity improvements and practical insights into what local farmers are doing.

Presenters: Simon Quilty - Global AgriTrends & Churchill Fellow on Carbon in agriculture - case studies from around the globe; Chris Taarnby from Elders - Carbon Farming inside the farm gate and Greg Ferrier - on the on-farm emissions action plan pilot and how farmers are taking action locally and how you can participate; plus a Farmer Discussion Panel.

Bookings: https://forms.office.com/r/uj9XYR6Hdv by 9th November or contact Rhiannon Sandford yeariversecretary@outlook.com or 0405 104 714.

 

The Goulburn Broken CMA acknowledges and respects First Nations people and the deep connection they have with their land and waters.


We acknowledge the Yorta Yorta and Taungurung people and their ancestors/forbears as Traditional Owners of the land and waters in the Goulburn Broken Catchment (and beyond). We value our ongoing partnerships with Yorta Yorta Nation Aboriginal Corporation and Taungurung Land and Waters Council for the health of Country and its people.


We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge and recognise the primacy of Traditional Owners obligations, rights and responsibilities to use and care for their traditional lands and waters.
