We live in changing times – sometimes we can choose our challenges and sometimes these are created for us. 

The 2013 conference encouraged delegates to share their experiences and learning’s about dealing with opportunities and threats in the fields in which we work as we consider how we react to transformative change. 

Key themes for the conference were: 

  • Change – an opportunity or limitation? 

  • Adaptive management – farming, community, health, other

  • Resilience – building and encouraging resilience on farm, in community

  • Collective action – broader community, heath, farming, other

  • Future trends in extension and advisory services
