2023 Community WELA Events: In Pictures

All around the country, WELA community members are coming together to meet, be inspired, re-energised, and to share the lessons they’ve learned from their advocacy across the decades.

Take a look at our events in 2023 so far. 

March - nipaluna / Hobart

In March, we hosted a WELA Connect event in nipaluna / Hobart, where we were blown away by the attendance of over 70 passionate environmentalists from around the state.

Set against the backdrop of the Bob Brown Foundation’s Art for takayna exhibition, attendees were able to meet and connect as well as hear from WELA’s Strategic Director Victoria McKenzie-McHarg about the changing face of environmental leadership in Australia.

March - Meeanjin / Brisbane

On International Women’s Day, we were proud to co-host a breakfast event in collaboration with Bush Heritage Australia, Brisbane Sustainability Agency and BirdLife Australia in Meeanjin / Brisbane. 

Attendees at the event heard from three generations of women working across conservation, sustainability and the environmental sectors to create a sustainable future for Brisbane and beyond.

February - Ngunnawal country / Canberra

In February, we hosted a night of inspiration and connection for changemakers across Ngunnawal Country / Canberra, passionate about the power of female and gender diverse leadership for our climate and environment.

The event included an incredible panel of three generations of environmental leaders: forest activist Heather Kenway, Indigenous water researcher Kate Harriden and executive director of Conservation ACT Elle Lawless.
