VEAC celebrates 50 years


The symposium showcased environmental and social research on Victoria's public land and how science contributes to policy and management. Research and data are central to VEAC’s role in providing authoritative advice and recommendations on public land.

It was in recognition of the importance of research that the Bill Borthwick Student Scholarships were established for tertiary students to assist in the costs of research relating to public land in Victoria. This event also marked ten years of the Borthwick scholarships.

In a series of five-minute talks, we heard from twenty postgraduate students, public land managers and scientists who conduct research on public land.

Individual talks given at the symposium can now be viewed online from our YouTube channel. A full recording of the symposium is also available until the end of April 2021.

We didn’t have time on the day to answer all the questions from the audience. We have compiled questions from the day with additional answers from some of our speakers which is available to download here.
