Community Awareness & Engagement

Home / Our Work / Community Awareness & Engagement

Community understanding and involvement is essential to successful natural resource management (NRM). GeoCatch aims to share its knowledge with all sectors of community to promote a greater understanding of the values of the Geographe Catchment and management issues that need to be addressed. It also aims to engage and involve the community in natural resource management activities to foster community ownership of NRM in the catchment.

GeoCatch’s community awareness and engagement activities are many and varied:

  • Facilitating presentations and workshops which raise community understanding of NRM issues
  • Coordinating events where the community can become involved in NRM activities
  • Fostering community partnerships to protect the values of the Geographe Catchment
  • Seeking community input to projects and management strategies through consultation processes and community representation on GeoCatch
  • Involving landowners in projects such as Rivercare, $mart Soils and Dairy Effluent Improvement
  • Reporting to the community on the activities of GeoCatch on a regular basis
  • Engaging the community in protecting the values of the catchment through programs such as Bay Friendly Businesses and Sustainable Schools
