TEDxDubbo - Tim Ferraro - Linking Community & Natural Resource Management

Tim has worked in environment and natural resource management for 15 years and has been General Manager of the Central West Catchment Management Authority (CMA) since 2004.Tim's work has been focused on the involvement of the community in managing and improving the condition of our natural resources.The Central West CMA works with organisations and individuals to improve the management of natural resources across around 11% of NSW. Tim believes that the Central West CMA's vision, Vibrant Communities and Healthy Landscapes, is a great summary of the positive challenges facing the CMA and how it should work with the community.TEDxDubbo focused attention on what we call FACETS -- Food, Agriculture, Climate, Energy, Topsoil and Sustainability. These FACETS are actually potent ideas shared by everyday people with an interest in these disciplines. In many of these topics there is an awareness campaign; the aim of bringing our community together united against catastrophic failures in our food-chain, environment and health. It is worth mentioning that we are also indebted to our natural systems for our economic wealth. Failures in Food, Agriculture, Climate, Energy, Topsoil and Sustainability are not just a local issue -- they are a global concern. http://tedxdubbo.com/In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
