Our Values: Ensuring we work as a team

Our values drive our processes, decisions and actions towards achieving our vision. In other words, our values act as our guideposts, ensuring that we work together as a team. As a member it is important you too are aware of these values.

We are Collaborative and Networked – we connect people with communities and the landscape, strengthen networks and bridge across different groups in communities.

We are Knowledge-based – we build, share and apply multiple sources of knowledge to achieve our Vision.

We are Inclusive – we include all people, groups and organisations and treat all with respect and dignity, knowing that while not all views align, we are all part of the Biosphere around us.

We are Focussed on making a Difference – we are vision driven and produce outcomes for the environment , for community, for kindred organisations, for our partners and for government.

We value the Knowledge and Cultural practices of Traditional Owners – we recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nations as the first Landcarers, and value working with traditional owners to integrate cultural knowledge into our practices. 

We are Non-party political – the diverse perspectives of Landcare communities inform our bi-partisan approach to working with governments.<
