To celebrate National Science Week, our Office has released ‘The Birrarung is alive’, a film that takes a spectacular journey up the Yarra River. All week we will share a new series of films about life on and around the Yarra River.
Commissioner for Environmental Sustainability Dr Gillian Sparkes shares some insights from a CEDA event on Innovation Precincts that she attended with Andrea Hinwood, Victoria’s Chief Environmental Scientist.
Space monitoring is the next step in sourcing cutting-edge environmental data and Victoria’s La Trobe University has demonstrated itself as a leader in the technology. Local scientists collaborated with the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) to create advanced control systems for the DLR Earth Sensing Imaging Spectrometer (DESIS).
The Office of the Commissioner for Environmental Sustainability team enjoyed a sunny, wintry field trip up the Yarra River – ahead of the release of the State of the Yarra and its Parklands report in late 2018.
