Heal Country: Community Healing
To celebrate National NAIDOC Week, the Indigenous Peoples’ Organisation Australia and Better Futures Australia are hosting a free webinar series — Heal Country, Heal Climate. Join this critical dialogue among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to explore climate change impacts and solutions, from Monday 5 - Friday 9 July. The fourth in the series, Community Healing, is Chaired by Ray Minniecon. Speakers include: Jonathan Hermawan Donna Jackson Auntie Jean Williams Ernie Dingo Bruce Pasco Panelists will explore ways of collectively looking after country and taking ownership of our collective futures. Discussions aim to identify Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander climate change priorities that will inform an action plan to be advocated for during this year’s global climate change negotiations. These discussions also aim to raise awareness of the national treasure we share in the world’s oldest living Indigenous culture, and facilitate the exchange of unique Indigenous land and water knowledge systems to inform Australia’s climate change response. Indigenous participants will be invited to attend a workshop to follow this series to further refine the priorities to take to the global climate change negotiations, COP26, in November 2021. Note: this is an online event.
