Victorian Climate-Smart Agriculture Fellowship and Masterclass 2018

Are you a producer in Victoria?

Committed to sustainability?

Passionate about the long-term prosperity of the agricultural sector?

Farmers for Climate Action invites leading farmers and other producers to apply to join Farmers for Climate Action's Climate Smart Agriculture Fellowship in Victoria.

We're looking for people with the potential to change the game, shape opinion and policy, and help agriculture and rural communities manage climate risks and prosper in a low-carbon world.

We'll give 20 Fellows the training, as well as ongoing support and encouragement, to promote climate smart agriculture.

The CSA Fellowship kicks off with a four-day masterclass in Seymour, 4-7 March 2019, where participants will learn from Australia’s leading experts in climate change and Australian agriculture, risk management and mitigation and climate adaptation.

This is a unique opportunity for you to break through the hype and get one-on-one answers to the critical questions around climate and energy. You’ll join a strong and supportive network of leading farmers across Australia, receive extensive training in key skills (including media and advocacy), and develop a platform to create lasting resilience in Victorian agriculture.

You’ll hear from speakers including Professor Richard Eckard, the Bureau of Meteorology (Dr Andrew Watkins) and Professor Mark Howden (Vice Chair IPCC Working Group II), along with Victorian farmers who are leading the way on climate resilience.

Applications to the Masterclass close 5p.m., Friday, 1 February 2019.

FCA will cover the costs of attendance, but places are limited to 20.

Drop us a note or call 0419 700 031 if you have any questions or would like information on how to apply.

We look forward to hearing from you.
