This year's conference aims to showcase the positive and proactive ways that local governments, industry specialists, sporting organisations and consultants are stepping up to the challenge of climate change and environmental stewardship.

If you've got a project you wish to showcase to others in Queensland that demonstrates climate action and how resilience and sustainability are being incorporated into the policy, planning , design and/or management of the parks spaces we develop, we'd love you to share it. Theme ideas include:
