This NPA webinar series explores how our members and supporters connect with nature. We all have our own ways of forging such connections, whether by bushwalking, snorkelling, research, citizen science, bush regeneration, photography or becoming involved in conservation advocacy. There’s never been a better time to hear about other’s experiences and you might just find a thing or two to add to your post-pandemic bucket list.
All of the webinars will be on Zoom. Participants will be able to ask questions of the presenters. The webinars will be recorded and can be watched later if you miss the live session. Registration is essential to access the live session.
Tuesday 22 August, 6pm
Presented by Gary Dunnett (NPA CEO), Ted Woodley (NPA Executive) and Bruce Donald AM (senior environmental lawyer)
The case for Snowy 2.0 doesn’t stack up economically, technically or environmentally. Simply, it is the wrong project in the wrong location. There are better alternatives, ones that avoid catastrophic impacts on Kosciusko National Park.
Our campaigning to prevent one of the most damaging elements, the construction of overhead transmission lines as part of the Snowy 2.0 project, has reached the point where we have no alternative but to take the government to court! We have no choice now but to heavily invest in ensuring that the government is held to account and will do the right thing for our natural environments and supposedly protected areas.
Our first hearing date was 3 August, with further hearing adjourned until 11 September.
Join us for this webinar to hear more about the background to the campaign, what we hope to achieve by going to court, and how you can help.
