The decisions we make today will change the course of the Northern Territory for generations to come. This conference will provide an opportunity to come together, build community, and collectively reimagine a just future as we confront the biodiversity and climate crises. Don't sit back, be a part of the solution.

The conversation will revolve around these 4 themes:

Next generation nature laws, multi-species justice, land clearing and biodiversity in the north, nature and wellbeing, state of the environment reporting, biodiversty markets

Extractivism and Development
The critical minerals conundrum, how Tiwi people slayed a giant, McArthur River Mine and slow violence, northern development, best practice mining law and policy

Climate and Just Economic Futures
Health impacts of climate change, alternative economic futures, housing, renewables and climate justice, new gas projects and net zero in the Northern Territory, climate integrity, climate grief

Freshwater Futures
Rivers and legal personhood, below the Berrimah Line, water law reform, First Nations water governance, floodplain harvesting, groundwater extraction and development, protection v management
