How we can bring together Western and Traditional knowledge systems

About this event

Australia has a history and one of many rich and diverse cultures going back thousands of years. But in more recent years power structures of western colonialism have excluded the knowledge of Indigenous people across Australia. More recently, Australian Indigenous people have determined their agency across political and socio-economic platforms, and escalated rights and responsibilities over their affairs and the management of Indigenous knowledge. In addressing these historical power imbalances, it’s important we understand them.

Today, Indigenous knowledge and their connection to diverse environments and ecosystems is being impacted as the climate changes- but also utilised to understand and address these impacts.

This webinar will look at the big picture of how Western and Traditional knowledge can come together, how meaningful Indigenous engagement can benefit all and the importance of Free and Informed Prior consent, Indigenous Cultural Intellectual Property and cultural safety for all. It will also look at examples of best practice cross-cultural exchange.

Speakers to be announced soon.
