Sam Strong is completing a PhD at Charles Sturt University. She is exploring the paradoxes of native vegetation in the context of bushfire in south east Australia in the 21st century. Sam has worked in regional Victoria in NRM, community engagement and project coordination for both NGO and land management agencies. Sam is interested in how people connect with the environment, the language we use to do so, and in the interface between communities and management agencies to help achieve collaborative outcomes.
Sam spoke in the Framing the questions session on Saturday morning on How language and myth shape our understanding of fire.
