Heal Country: Healing our Lands
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 third in the series, Healing our Lands, is Chaired by Karrina Nolan and Virginia Marshall. Speakers include: Anthony Watson Adrian Burragubba Kado Muir Auntie Lena Frazer Gadrian Hoosan 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.
