Climate action conversation: Solutions for a sustainable future - Port Macquarie

Do you live in a coastal village and worry about fire and flood?


Are you keen to learn how land management can be part of the climate solution?


Join us for a conversation with Lorraine Gordon and Dr Hanabeth Luke exploring options and opportunities for climate solutions, and the implications for government policy and political representation.This event will be of interest to those concerned about fire and flood in coastal villages and the role of land management in climate solutions. These conversations will delve into the current state of play in climate resilience and land-based mitigation, as well as the implications for government policy and political representation.


Renowned regenerative farmer and educator, Lorraine Gordon, brings a wealth of expertise and understanding of preserving and enhancing our natural capital, carbon farming and climate mitigation. After seven years of groundbreaking research and education at Southern Cross University – including setting up the first regenerative agriculture degree – Lorraine has joined leading Climate Solutions Company, Climate Friendly, as Principal of Nature Capital Australia, to pursue her vision for Australian landscapes and communities.


Dr. Hanabeth Luke stood as an independent in the seat of Page, and is passionate about building resilience in rural and regional Australia. As a researcher and educator, she focuses on reducing community and landscape vulnerability to weather extremes, increasing wellbeing and regenerative capacity through building and sharing knowledge among farmers, scientists and regional organisations.
