FNQ Environment Roundtable

As a regional conservation council, CAFNEC is tasked with representing our regional conservation issues at a State and National level; to government, larger organisations and the wider community. The FNQ Environment Roundtable, hosted by CAFNEC for a number of years, has provided an opportunity for CAFNEC to bring together CAFNEC Members and Supporters & 40+ Member Group representatives within the FNQ region to discuss our challenges and solutions, and identify strategic issues.

For the first time, in 2023, we opened the invite on Saturday 2 December to the broader community to demonstrate the grassroots power of our network and bring attention to the work of our member groups across the region. Read the full report here. 

Objectives of the Roundtable

  • Maintain and strengthen between groups within the FNQ region
  • Facilitate knowledge and resource sharing within the region
  • Take the time to focus on the broader regional perspective
  • Identify shared challenges and opportunities, and potential areas for collaboration
  • Deliver capacity building workshops and identify future training needs and opportunities
