BOSS coordinated the South East Queensland Living Landscapes Forum held in Boonah during September 2008.
The forum was hosted by the Regional Landscape and Open Space Advisory Committee and presented by the Queensland Government Department of Infrastructure and Planning and the South East Queensland Council of Mayors.
The keynote speaker was Dr John Williams, BSc Agr (Hons) PhD Commissioner of the Natural Resources Commission of New South Wales.
The forum focused on solutions for urban and regional dependencies to enhance livability; managing multiple values to maintain economically viable and socially vibrant communities; and working together in an uncertain future of climate change and increasing fuel prices.
The forum also included the launch of the Fassifern Rail Trail and a Tree Planting Ceremony.
Entertainment during the forum included Sounds of the Land, a celebration of Australian bush music with Bush Telegraph, and many field trips around the beautiful Boonah region.
