The climate change discussion is coming to Deniliquin.
An Australian National University science forum will be held at the Deniliquin RSL Club on Tuesday, August 12.
The forum is titled Living with Australia’s Climate: A community conversation on plant, production, water & health and is being held as part of National Science Week.
It will be run by ANU with support from Deniliquin Council and is part of a series of informal, science-based conversations with rural and regional communities on aspects of climate adaptation relevant to community concerns and interests.
Presentations will be given by three ANU scientists – Dr David Freudenberger, Dr Jamie Pittock and Dr Liz Hanna – who will focus on the impact of climate change on:
Dr Freudenberger’s expertise covers ecological restoration, woodland ecology, ecosystem services and carbon forestry.
Dr Pittock’s research interests include water and river basin management and the conservation of freshwater ecosystems.
Dr Hanna’s research interests are the human health and impacts of climate change, environmental health assessments and climate-related disasters.
The forum is free to attend, but registration is required. Go to climateconversation2014-deniliquin.eventbrite.com, email outreach.cmbe—firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (02)
Deniliquin Council manager economic and business development John Harvie, who is working with ANU to coordinate the event, encouraged local people to register.
‘‘This is a unique opportunity to discuss climate change and potential impacts with leading national scientists,’’ he said.
‘‘Whether individuals agree with it or not, climate change discussions must take place and this conversation presents an opportunity to be involved and educated.’’
The forum will be held from 6pm to 8pm on Tuesday, August 12. It will be followed by light refreshments.
