Shane Fitzsimmons to Headline NSW Landcare & Local Land Services Conference 2022

By NSW Local Land Services
Posted: 11 Jun 2021
Shane Fitzsimmons, Commissioner of Resilience NSW, will wow the crowd in Tweed Heads as the keynote speaker for the NSW Landcare & Local Land Services Conference in 2022.

Commissioner Fitzsimmons will draw from his experiences as the former Commissioner of the Rural Fire Service (RFS), guiding NSW through the devastating 2019-20 bushfire season, to delve into a range of thought-provoking topics.

“Our recent experiences – from drought and bushfire, storm and flood, to COVID-19 – have shown us that collaboration is key to improving response, recovery and building resilience into the future,” Commissioner Fitzsimmons said.

“This event is an opportunity to reflect, consider lessons learnt, and identify ways we can better work together and with the community to improve outcomes for all into the future.

“After being so actively involved in the bushfire response as the NSW RFS Commissioner, I’m now in the unique and privileged position of working with those same communities through their bushfire recovery as the Commissioner of Resilience NSW.

“As part of this event, I will share my personal experience of the 2019-20 bushfire season, provide an update on the recovery operation and outline my vision for a more aware, more prepared and more resilient NSW.”

Chairperson of Landcare NSW, Stephanie Cameron, welcomed the announcement that Commissioner Fitzsimmons will be the keynote speaker and said it will be a wonderful opportunity to learn from his experiences.

“This past year has shown how resilience and adaptability are critical in not only surviving, but thriving through these challenging times,” Mrs Cameron said.

“During what has been a most challenging time, both as a community and for our environment, reflecting on how we have handled crises in the past will hold Landcarers in great stead for the future.”

Local Land Services Board Acting Chair, Allison Harker, said farmers, Landcarers and community groups also have an opportunity to present at the conference, with expressions of interest now open.

“We are looking for presentations and workshops that showcase resilience, as well as how we can rethink, renew and recharge to create a sustainable future,” Ms Harker said.  

“This is a great opportunity for passionate individuals and groups to share their on-the-ground experiences and learnings with the broader Landcare community.”

Interested presenters can find out more information, and download their expression of interest form.

Conference tickets will go on sale later this year. Interested delegates and exhibitors can find updates at the conference website and by following ‘NSW Landcare and Local Land Services Conference’ on Facebook.
