Climate and Country Forum Climate and Country Forum

Climate and Country Forum

Saturday 16 October 2021

The CLIMATE AND COUNTRY forum brings together First Nations leaders, activists, and researchers to discuss our current environmental crises and the ecological impacts which have continued to unfold from the colonisation of Australia.

The forum will also expand upon the themes of WILAM BIIK, curated by Stacie Piper—an exhibition arising from the unsevered connection between First Peoples of South East Australia, their Country, and their Ancestors—to explore the ways in which Aboriginal knowledge and custodianship of Country can lead the way in redressing many of these problems and to begin a process of healing these damaged ecosystems.

Join Gunnai Gunditjmara and DjabWurrung woman Senator Lidia Thorpe; Barkandji woman Zena Cumpston; and Wurundjeri, Dja Dja Wurrung and Ngurai Illum Wurrung woman Stacie Piper, for this stimulating conversation on Aboriginal knowledge of Country, political activism and engagement, and cultural connections.

Reserve your ticket today for this free online panel, hosted on Zoom. Limited tickets.
Thanks to the Saturday Paper.
