Hello ASCers

Have you heard about the Inaugural Indigenous Caring for Country-An Urban Perspective Symposium?

It marks the public commencement of a Monash Sustainability Institute initiative developed in partnership with Victoria's Indigenous community. The symposium will consider whether the concept of Caring for Country be applied in an urban environment.

The symposium will be a collaborative process structured to facilitate an exchange of ideas, information and scientific data suited to the needs of the participants so that joint solutions can be developed. For example, the technology for Water Sensitive Urban Design exists, however there is limited public acceptance for changes in the use and reuse of water. Incorporating the Indigenous approach of Caring for Country into our public discussions will serve to increase awareness of the need to 'care for', ie protect, our water resources as an integral part of community, environment and economy.
