Filed under: Australasia — inece @ 8:02 pm

During the 7th Annual Australasian Environmental Law Enforcement and Regulators neTwork (AELERT) conference, held in Canberra, Australia, 3-5 November 2010, over 280 participants from across Australia and New Zealand expanded their networks and discussed a wide range of regulatory issues impacting on contemporary environmental regulatory regimes.

David Suzuki presented the keynote address, urging conference participants to consider the current economic influences over all issues, including the environment. He discussed his legacy, a rambling of ideas and thoughts that he has developed over time and felt the need to share.

Other plenary speakers presented on the need to better plan our future, to learn the lessons from less than optimal delivery of programs, and opportunities to work together across global regions. In following the conference theme, the diverse range of plenary speakers also showcased gene technology and waste industry futures, along with bringing conference participants back to consider the concept of ‘place’.

Regulatory practitioners showcased the diverse range of environmental regulatory responses during the numerous conference breakout sessions. From audits to investigations, and procedures to practices, a wide diversity of recent experiences were presented on.

Conference presentations will soon be available for participants through the conference website, to allow for the continued exchange of ideas and prompt for ongoing liaison between attendees.

Arrangements are already underway for the conference in Darwin, Australia, from 26-28 October 2011.
