Geography in Conversation

Speakers: Mr Scott Chaseling, the Principal Program Officer, responsible for Natural Environmental outcomes, at Brisbane Sustainability Agency, Mr Leo Lee the President of Save Our Waterways Now (SOWN) which is the Enoggera Catchment Bushcare group and Mr Robbie Porter, Senior Special Projects Officer, Ozfish Shellfish Revolution.

Oxley Creek Transformation. Brisbane City Council has committed $100 million over 20 years to transform Oxley Creek, from its mouth at the Brisbane River to Larapinta, into a world-class green lifestyle and leisure destination.

When SOWN began, the local creeks and waterways were seen as dumping grounds for rubbish and weeds. SOWN has sought to engage with and educate the community about the benefits of creeks for residents and for the environment. Enoggera Catchment creeks are now highly valued by the local community for their environmental and lifestyle benefits.

Ozfish, on 15 October 2021, launched the largest community-driven shellfish reef restoration project in Australia in Moreton Bay. Over the next six years, volunteers will build more than 50,000 robust Oyster Baskets (ROBs) and deploy them to reform a living vibrant ecosystem donated for restoration by the Port of Brisbane.

Each speaker will have 8-10 minutes to spotlight their work. During the Q&A forum the audience will have 60 minutes to ask questions of the experts on their projects.
