Themes and Suggestions

This year’s themes centre on ideas for transforming to a sustainable human existence at all geographical scales, particularly at the local, regional, and remote scales, but also at the national and global scales:

  • Place-based perspectives on sustainability and transformation
  • Institutions for resilience and transformation
  • Making the marginal mainstream: expanding horizons – expanding rights

Other suggestions for themes/panels are also invited, particularly where organizations wish to provide sponsorship (see below). For example, there are planned special sessions around Wilderness through support from the Environmental Humanities Network at UNE and another on Indigenous Wellbeingsupported by Ninti One Ltd as an Indigenous Participation Sponsor.

Please email anzsee2015@gmail.com with your suggestions. For complete details go to http://www.anzsee.org/anzsee2015conference/.
