October 18: Sustaining our Country
Sustainable development through Indigenous knowledge’s and practices.
The Wollotuka Institute and Veolia Australia welcome you to join a discussion about linking sustainable development with Indigenous knowledge’s and western technological advances.
At a time when the world is preoccupied with climate change, as natural resources become scarcer, and we face growing challenges of urbanisation, we need innovative models that support growth and sustainability.
Indigenous Australians are the world’s oldest living civilisation, have successfully practised environmental sustainability in developing the Australian environment for over 50,000 years.
The forum aims to highlight and build the case for Indigenous knowledge’s and practices and the opportunities to link western innovation across land, water, waste and energy solutions.
Date: Wednesday, 18 October
Time: 1pm — 3.30 pm
Venue: The Wollotuka Institute, University of Newcastle, University Drive, Callaghan, NSW 2308
