5th Annual LaRRSA Conference 1 – 4 Aug 2017, Mpumalanga

The 5th annual Conference aims to bring together key industry, governmental and academic land practitioners, all of whom have valuable insight into and contributions to make to the land rehabilitation discipline in Southern Africa.

We are excited to again offer a one-day pre-conference workshop for attendees to gain exposure to current industry, governmental and academic practices. The workshop will focus on challenges and opportunities for land practitioners in a changing climate, and will be led by the highly acclaimed WITS’ Scholes duo: Professor R.J. (Bob) Scholes and Professor Mary Scholes. It will offer both theory and practice, discussing solutions to managing and implementing projects in uncertain systems.

As an introduction to the networking opportunities of the Conference, this year we will also be hosting a Meet-and-Greet after the workshop. This will give attendees a chance to interact with each other over creative cocktails.

The two days of conference proceedings will include internationally renowned keynote and plenary speakers, as well as industry leads on pertinent theme topics. These include Liza van der Merwe, Clinton Lee (South32 – Health, Safety & Environment Manager) and Colin Nott (Conservation Agriculture Namibia – Director). It will also be packed with presentations of case-studies and/or research projects focusing on our theme.

In support of the Conference Proceedings, the annual Gala Dinner will again be a fun-filled occasion to get dressed up, interact over good food, and be entertained by Callie Roos. Callie is a motivational speaker, teambuilding and leadership training expert who uses his lifetime experiences of tracking and survival in the African wilds to move organisations and their people from survival to significance. The Gala Dinner will also be used to present the 2017 LaRSSA Lifetime Achievement Award to Piet ‘Oom Piet’ van Deventer.

In addition, there will be a chance to join an early-morning hike and birding event around the Olifants River Lodge – birds, binos and boots, led by LaRSSA’s Adrian Haagner.

The Conference will close-out with the annual post-conference site visits. This year we are thrilled to be able to offer attendees three different site visits, each offering a specific land rehabilitation focus, and each led by exciting, passionate facilitators.

A summary of the Conference Programme is provided below – the LaRSSA Council looks forward to welcoming you to our 5th Annual Conference.
