This conference will explore the role holistic fire management can play in making our landscapes and communities more resilient in a changing climate. New scientific research, policy updates and on ground management issues and success stories will be presented. This year we are introducing speed talks - four minute talks intended for people wishing to: introduce a new concept, present some interim results, or share an on ground success story.

There will be four symposia on the following themes:

  • Resilience (environmental, social and cultural) - What is it? How do we achieve it?
  • Good fire vs bad fire? - Managing fire to meet desirable local outcomes
  • Using fire for restoration - More than burning within specific thresholds
  • Strengthening community resilience - What tools are available and how to use them.
