Virtual Conference

PLC2022: Recover, Restore, Redouble was  a virtual event incorporating concurrent sessions that shared practice, knowledge and science, and plenaries presenting current knowledge and cross-cutting themes of national importance and local relevance.


Across the 3 days of PLC2022, there were high levels of interaction through the workshops, the session Q&As and discussion boards.


From the tremendous diversity of topics, speakers and perspectives, several unifying key messages emerged:

  • acknowledgment, recognition, respect for and valuing the voices and knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities
  • the importance of action at relevant scales
  • the need to build hope
  • the value of diverse land use and land practice
  • we are stronger together


ALCA acknowledges the delegates for their engagement and participation, the speakers and facilitators for their stories and knowledge, the sponsors for their unwavering support, and the ALCA members for their leadership and assistance. Of particular note was the BCT for their role in delivering PLC2022 from Sydney.

An important component of the conference was the implementation of the PLC Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Access and Engagement Strategy.

To support achievement of the strategy’s goals, we created a video to highlight the level of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander engagement, and we captured their key messages of managing and caring for Country.


Plans are underway for PLC23 which will be held in Canberra in October 2023. To keep up to date with ALCA and for updates about PLC23, subscribe here.
