Managing Mosquitoes in and around Wetlands - WET Program

Managing Mosquitoes in and around Wetlands
11 & 12 November 2015

Mosquitoes are a natural part of our wetlands but they can also pose pest and public health risks. Constructed and rehabilitated urban wetlands bring people and mosquitoes together. Whilst the demands for conservation of wetlands and their wildlife are ever increasing, keeping a balance between wetland habitat functions and public health has been one of the most challenging tasks that wetland managers deal with on a regular basis. Whether you are a manager, entomologist, ecologist, technician or a custodian of a wetland, attendance at this workshop will assist you in determining if local mosquitoes pose a nuisance or public health threat and developing an effective plan for managing wetlands so they are no longer a prime habitat for nuisance mosquitoes.

Managing Constructed Wetlands and Water Plants - WET Program




Managing Constructed Wetlands and Water Plants

8th & 9th October 2015


All wetlands are under enormous pressure due to anthropogenic activities. Urban constructed wetlands are particularly at risk and can also suffer greatly from unplanned design and inappropriate construction. Poor maintenance and inadequate repair works also add to their degradation. Unless properly planned actions are taken, wetland assets can quickly turn into a huge liability. Poor maintenance may also mean that wetlands are infested with pest mosquitoes and other nuisance-causing insects, thus posing human health risks

This 2-day workshop will focus on these issues, highlight lessons learned from successful construction and management, as well as discuss effective, practical management tools. The talks and tutorials will be delivered by top experts and practising ecologists in the respective fields.

The workshop will include site visits to wetlands at Sydney Olympic Park.

2015 Writing Clear Science Workshops

2015 Writing Clear Science Workshops
www.writingclearscience.com.au

What we teach:

We teach how to write clearly and succinctly, without sacrificing scientific accuracy.

We teach you how to get your thoughts down clearly and how to increase your efficiency as a writer. We teach how to write and design documents according to audience (e.g. industry, peer review), purpose (e.g. monitoring report, journal article) and the type of research or project problem that needs to be solved.

The workshops cover all aspects of writing from discussing common problems, recommending efficient practices, improving writing style, reworking sentence structure and paragraph structure, to analysing section and whole report structure.

We review the standard scientific reporting framework, how to prepare reports and papers, and discuss how to clearly and concisely communicate a research project to a chosen audience. In addition, across the two days, we conduct editing, writing and re-writing exercises, where we teach how to improve writing through effective editing skills and critical review techniques.

The Challenge

Increasing demand for energy is taking place against a backdrop of unprecedented change, new technologies, evolving communities, and industry and government needs. The challenge is to produce more energy while continuing to reduce carbon emissions.

A more focused consolidated approach to energy, carbon management and sustainability is required; recognising that need, the International Energy Centre (IEC) pioneered a new and practical approach to considering energy and climate change issues through thought leadership, education and innovation management initiatives.

Be part of the solution.

There are several education options for individuals such as the Master of Energy Studies (MES). Students become part of the solution and lead the transformation of the economy. The program develops skills that are highly sought in future energy leaders. MES graduates are influential advocates for an accelerated yet sustainable transition to a clean energy future.

(IEC) delivers continuing professional development courses for a range of private and public clients. .
