Join us for the Goldfields World Heritage webinar
1.00 - 2.00 pm AEST, Monday 19 April 2021
The World Heritage Bid is shining a light on the Goldfields, creating opportunities to share the significance of the region with visitors, while also strengthening the economy and allowing communities to thrive.
Join the Central Victorian Goldfields World Heritage Bid Patrons, The Hon. John Brumby AO and The Hon. Denis Napthine AO, alongside a panel of experts, to discuss the current campaign to secure World Heritage listing for the Goldfields. This interactive online event will provide community members with the opportunity to further understand the process of World Heritage listing, the socio-economic opportunities that listing can bring to the region, and how the community can contribute, including through the recently launched Happiness Index Survey.
Speakers include Trevor Budge AM, Strategic Projects Officer at City of Greater Bendigo; Kristal Buckley AM, Lecturer in Cultural Heritage at Deakin University; Prof. Susan Lawrence, historical archaeologist at La Trobe University; and Paul Rogers, Co-founder and Director at Planet Happiness.
This event is being held as part of the 2021 Australian Heritage Festival running from 18 April – 2 May. See more events being held in the Festival via the link here.
