The Centre for Rural Regional Law and Justice and TAFE partners hosted an inaugural forum on Carbon Trading on Wednesday 6 August 2012. The forum proved to be a major success.
The aim of the forum was to inform and share knowledge with communities and key organisations and provide an effective regional voice to rural communities on contemporary policy issues.
The forum was attended by over 50 rural and regional stakeholders from around Victoria, who enjoyed the opportunity to come together and start a conversation regarding the new tax regime.
Guest speakers included:
