First Nations Communities and Climate Action – Part of Future Forums: Ideas shaping tomorrow

May 23 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

In the lead up to World Environment Day on 5 June, ABC Indigenous Affairs Editor Bridget Brennan leads a conversation about the importance of First Nations’ knowledge in protecting our environment, discussing important projects and initiatives led by Indigenous communities around the world to create a more sustainable future for us all.

Presented in collaboration with the MIT Civic Design Initiative Deep Listening Project.

With a deep connection to, and knowledge of, the land they care for, First Nations communities are a crucial but often overlooked voice in conversations about sustainability, climate action and environmental policy.

Bridget will talk with Dja Dja Wurrung Group CEO Rodney Carter and Dr Darren J. Ranco who is the Associate Professor of Anthropology and Chair of Native American Programs at the University of Maine.

This event will take place at the Melbourne Museum and will also be streamed online. Guests can choose to purchase a ticket to attend in person, or an online ticket to watch the live-stream. All ticket holders will have on-demand access to the event recording for 14 days. Find out more about First Nations Communities and Climate Action – Part of Future Forums: Ideas shaping tomorrow.
