Managing living collections and landscapes in a (climate) changing world
Our Patron, Professor Tim Entwisle, will talk about how Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria is responding to climate change, particularly its impacts on the stunning botanical landscape of Melbourne Gardens. In 2016, RBGV released a world-first Landscape Succession Strategy, its response to the changes in climate expected in Melbourne over the next 70 years. Then in 2018, RBGV launched the international Climate Change Alliance for Botanic Gardens to share experiences and help other gardens adapt their landscapes. The objective at RBGV is to manage change so that the look and feel of the existing landscape is retained (and further improved), and we keep and add plants and plant collections to deliver on the mission of RBGV.
