Join conservationist and community engagement practitioner Arkellah Irving for an in-depth look at how creativity and heart-felt leadership have helped shape the future for Adelaide’s newest national park.
Find out how Arkellah went beyond the boundaries of the engagement spectrum in order to take a deep-dive at dreaming and imagining of a better place and what it took to lead this kind of a process in government.
Arkellah specialises in engagement design and creative communications for policy development. She has a strong focus on inspiring action through community engagement and working across-sectors to find innovative local solutions to global problems.
She has worked extensively in conservation and community engagement, having worked as a Principal Policy Advisor for the South Australian Department of Premier and Cabinet as well as Manager of Conservation Partnerships and most recently Team Leader of Protected Areas and Community Planning at the South Australian Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources.
She has also spent many years working for non-profit organisations, in both practice roles such as scuba and marine research, through to providing policy advice on nature conservation matters.
