A world-first international conference on Landcare research from 5-8 November 2017 at Nagoya will precede workshops around Fukushima, involving Australian and Japanese Landcare co-ordinators, scientists and landowners examining practical ways to improve post-disaster recovery and encourage younger people into farming.
This is the first world gathering of land-care academics and practitioners to discuss the theories, practice and pragmatics of the 'land-care field' and the role of land-care, localism, self-reliance, sustainability, rural and regional resilience and post-emergency and disaster recovery, for application globally.
The conference is being organised by Nanzan University Institute for Social Ethics, and co-hosted by Australian Landcare International (ALI) and managed by the Secretariat of the International Conference of Landcare Studies 2017 (Conference Organising Team).
