New England decides: water & mining forum

Water, mining and agriculture: what is the balance?

The Federal Government approved the dangerous Shenhua coal mine on the Liverpool Plains last year, putting food and water at risk. Barnaby Joyce said he doesn't support the mine, but he failed to stop it, despite having plenty of opportunity to do so as Federal Agriculture and Water Minister.

Why is it so hard to protect land, water and communities?

Come and hear from farmers and experts about the boom in food production, the importance of water, and the global decline in coal and gas markets. 


Featuring:

Derek and Kirrily Blomfield, 2014 Farmers of the Year, on value-added agriculture and the dining boom
Professor John Williams, Wentworth Group of Concerned Scientists, on landscape and water management.
Tim Buckley, Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, on declining coal and gas markets.
Candidates in the Federal seat of New England
