University lecturer to facilitate weir discussions
11 May 2018
Southern Cross University Lecturer Dr Pascal Scherrer will facilitate the meetings of the Bray Park Weir Tidal Protection Project Reference Group, with the first meeting scheduled for Friday 25 May.
Dr Scherrer has extensive experience in facilitation in his core role as a researcher and teacher in the School of Business and Tourism at the Lismore campus.
He has successfully contributed to the implementation of more than 20 industry, university and government projects.
Dr Scherrer received two awards for community engagement and community engagement research for his role in leading the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service engagement on visitor management issues at Wollumbin (Mt Warning).
He also was the lead investigator on a project assessing Rottnest Island’s sustainable visitor capacity, facilitating discussions between key experts, opposing interest groups, managers and operational staff. The project successfully delivered a mandate to implement many positive changes with respect to visitor infrastructure.
His aim in facilitating the Project Reference Group meetings will be to accurately reflect the voices of the membership and work towards consensus on ways to mitigate the risk of contamination of the Tweed District Water Supply by salt water.
