Champion – Simon Corbell

‘Two of the things that bind me to Canberra and wider region are its sublime landscapes and a great respect for the untiring work of the volunteer organisations that restore, protect and celebrate our environment.

Simon Corbell – Champion of the Landkeepers Trust

As former Minister for the Environment in the ACT Government I had the privilege of working with and supporting many of these organisations.

Since I officially launched the Capital Region Landkeepers Trust in 2014, I have watched it develop as an increasingly important provider of scholarships, fellowships and grants that are making a real difference to keeping our landscapes healthy through learning and leadership.

As a result I had no hesitation on leaving political life to accept the invitation from the Trust to become a ‘champion’ for them and their work.

Into the future the Trust will continue to make a lasting contribution across the Capital Region by investing in people and projects that lead the way in better understanding our landscapes, developing innovative restoration and management techniques, developing creative approaches to excite and engage local communities and supporting leadership and career development of Indigenous people wishing to work on, care for and celebrate country.

If you or your organisation share a similar interest in, or passion for, the work of the Trust there are of variety of ways you can provide financial support; as an individual donor, a benefactor, a corporate sponsor or a partner. The Trust is a Registered Environmental Organisation with Deductible Gift Recipient Status.

Together, we can all contribute to seeing the work of the Capital Region Landkeepers Trust restore and and protect the landscapes we love’.
