Turning the Tide Newsletter – Summer 2024
Inaugural NT Conference
AMCS was a sponsor of the inaugural State of the Environment Conference hosted by the Environment Centre of the Northern Territory (ECNT) held on Larrakia country, Darwin.
It was a huge success thanks to the great work of the Environment Centre NT, the many visitors from across Australia and the locals who attended. Conference attendees included people who are passionate about the Northern Territory’s environment, such as people who work in the environmental field, land managers, community sector employees, government employees, peak bodies, researchers and Traditional Owners.
It was a truly extraordinary event, providing an opportunity for our community to come together, build power and collectively reimagine a environmentally just future for the Territory.
The Conference boasted a packed program around four major themes, Extractivism (mining threats and legacies) and Resistance; Northern Australia at the Crossroads; Valuing the Territory’s Nature; Freshwater Futures and Climate, and Just Economic Futures.
AMCS’s Adele Pedder participated in the Conference closing panel titled ‘What next for the NT’s environment?’
