Event description

Description

Featuring presentations by:

Dr Emilie Ens
Cross Cultural Ecologist, Macquarie University

Emilie was awarded an Inspiring Australia Citizen Science grant in 2017 to lead a project in collaboration with Aboriginal Citizens of Arnhem Land to develop tools for cross cultural biodiversity. Emilie conducts research with Aboriginal ranger groups mainly around wetlands, invasive species, biodiversity and fire. She works in close collaboration with many indigenous groups around Australia on local and national scales.

Dr Donna Houston
Director of the Bachelor of Planning Program, Macquarie University
Dr Houston’s interests converge around the question of how we can live ethically, creatively and justly with diverse assemblies of humans and non-humans in time of global environmental change. Her research is situated within the fields of cultural and environmental geography and urban planning with a focus on wastelands and post-industrial landscapes; emergent cultural heritage practices, literary and creative place making; multi species cities; urban political ecology; climate adaption and action; animal and food geographies and social and environmental justice in ‘more-than-human’ worlds.

Sarah Holland Clift
Coordinator of the Parramatta River Catchment Group (PRCG)
Sarah, through the PRCG, leads an alliance of local councils, state government agencies and community groups. The PRCG’s mission, through the ‘Our Living River’ initiative is to make Parramatta River swimmable again by 2025. To achieve this goal, the PRCG is currently developing a masterplan that incorporates catchment-wide ecological health, water quality, waterway governance, economic analysis, and community involvement.

Sarah has a strong technical background in weed management, carbon and emissions in agriculture and river health. Her professional goal is to contribute to the sustainable management of our natural resources.

Presented by City of Ryde and Macquarie University.
