Report Launch - After the coal rush, the clean up: A community blueprint to restore the Hunter

The future of the Hunter Valley is in the balance: decisions made now will determine the viability of the region’s communities and environments for many decades to come. The coal industry has dominated the physical, social, and economic landscape of the Hunter for generations, but its reign is coming to an end. The Hunter economy, people and landscape are moving toward a post-coal future. The question is, how well will we manage it?

More than 130,000 hectares of mine-owned land in the Hunter will become available for re-use in the next twenty years – the restoration of this land could deliver enormous economic and employment potential, and position the Hunter as a world leader in regenerative industries. But to unlock the opportunities of the future, we must first clean up the legacy of the past. 

Our new report reveals community perspectives and priorities for managing this landscape-scale challenge. The Community Blueprint to Restore the Hunter is our call to action - to get the settings right to enable a prosperous, inclusive and sustainable future for our Valley. 

Join us for the report launch, then stick around for a chat and a light meal.

We're looking forward to seeing you there.
