Healthy Country Planning in New South Wales, Australia

Story by Frank Weisenberger and Stuart Cowell

Conservationists from five different countries participated in a three-day Healthy Country Planning training workshop in the Blue Mountains in New South Wales in April, prior to the 2018 Coaches Rally. Using the Health Country Planning approach, this training was primarily aimed at Indigenous participants and people who work with the Indigenous community. It was a wonderful experience to spend a weekend in a beautiful setting with diverse conservation experts representing 15 different organisations around the world. We would also like to welcome Kenny Clark and Damien Parriman to the cadre of Conservation Coaches in Australia!
