There is also an opportunity to assist in field work for a vegetation study being conducted in SEQ and the Brigalow-Belt Bioregions.

Communities in Control 2014: The Lucky Country Conference
Reflecting on 50 years since Donald Horne's seminal book.
In 1964, Donald Horne wrote "Australia is a lucky country, run by second-rate people who share its luck." It was a searing criticism that has now been adopted as a nationalistic boast.
Luck: it's a millstone round our neck. We take it for granted, and we don't ask why. We don't say we work harder than other countries, or that we're stronger or smarter or more creative, or even that we've been blessed by destiny. We're just luckier. And that leads nowhere.
At the 2014 Communities in Control Conference (The Lucky Country Conference) - Melbourne, May 26 and 27 - we want to bring the spotlight back on what we've gained and lost as a society, and how we can organise ourselves to get from where we are to where we need to be.
