Future Landscapes

Learn about some of the important climate science projects underway at Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne with Future Landscapes, a virtual one-day talks program.  

We are pleased to be able to livestream two talks from our Future Landscape program for free on Saturday, 21 August. These talks are The Botanic Garden That Thought it Could Change the World and The Future of Fungi.

In response to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions, Future Landscapes: First Nations Climate Change Justice Walk has been cancelled. We are unable to offer a livestream version of this experience. If you purchased tickets for the live version of the walk you will receive a full refund.

Join acclaimed writer and climate activist Sophie Cunningham (Melbourne and City of Trees) as she discusses the future of fungi with Tom May, Principal Research Scientist (Mycology). Uncover the story of the Gardens’ Landscape Succession Strategy with Sophie, Charlie Carroll, Manager Arboriculture and Clare Hart, Manager Horticulture, to find out how this led to the creation of Climate Change Alliance of Botanic Gardens. 

Presented by Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria as part of Inspiring Victoria’s ACCLIMATISE program for National Science Week, 14 – 22 August 2021.
