It's all systems go for the 2023 North Australia Savanna Fire Forum. After two years online due to Covid, the forum will once again be held face-to-face in Darwin with an exciting program that brings together experts from across northern Australia to share knowledge and improve savanna fire management understanding and practice.
2023 Theme: Our Past Informs Our Future
Our 2023 theme picks up on the theme of the State of the Environment Report released in 2022. Locally and globally, the past is a rich source of useful information.
The 2023 Forum will focus on how experience, history, evidence, and case studies can be used to inform and empower decision-making in the savanna burning space. It will explore both traditional and mainstream forms of knowledge sharing within the network and beyond.
Expressions of Interest
In response to feedback, this year’s program will include both plenary sessions (attended by all participants) and dedicated workshops. Expressions of Interest are now open for short presentations by ranger groups and other industry experts. Suggested topics and further information HERE.
Presenters could include Indigenous land managers, rangers, fire practitioners, park managers, pastoralists, scientists, program managers or anyone working in the fire management and carbon sector. We strongly encourage Indigenous presenters in each session. Applicants are also encouraged to apply for multiple presentations.
Each year the Forum attracts a sell-out audience of 300 fire managers, Indigenous land managers, carbon industry practitioners, scientists, policy makers and other interested parties, with a strong emphasis on Indigenous-led discussions. Applications are invited from organisations committed to the values of the Forum.
Registrations Now Open
Each year the Savanna Fire Forum completely sells out, so we urge you to register for the forum at your earliest convenience to avoid disappointment. Ticket prices and further information available at the event website.
