11 April 2018: Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand news


The Australasian Network for Ecology and Transportation (ANET) 2018 Conference will be co-hosted by the Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand and will be held in Creswick, Victoria from 29 April 2018 - 2 May 2018. 

Together we will explore how the community connects with nature through roadside vegetation and how roads and railways both disrupt and connect flora, fauna and ecosystems. Importantly, we will discuss the latest approaches and innovations from across Australia, New Zealand and around the world to improve the ecological sustainability of transportation infrastructure.

The program is packed full of exciting presentations, workshops and discussions, as well as a great trade display, poster session and field trip. If you haven't already, check out the full program and register today.

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning Gala Dinner

Tuesday 1 May 2018 | 7:00pm - 11:00pm | Included with two-day registration or day two registration


Dr Gary Veale is the guest speaker at the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning Gala Dinner, being held on Tuesday evening. Gary's story includes dog sledding in remote Alaska, spending 8 years as a volunteer guide at Melbourne Zoo, and starting his career working for a helicopter manufacturer in the UK. He's a former Director with KPMG, holds a PhD in the role of nature in unlocking human potential and corporate nature responses (University of Melbourne), and has spent over 20 years advising public and private sector clients - large and small - on sustainability-related matters. He's just been appointed as an Honorary Senior Fellow at the University of Melbourne's School of Ecosystem and Forestry Sciences, and is the founder of The Nature of, a specialist advisory firm focused on the human relationship with nature.

At a time when the profound influence of nature on human decisions, desires and wellbeing is increasingly recognised, we've asked Gary to help us explore the nature of transport experiences.
