First Nations knowledge and wisdom; opportunities for recognition and sharing through academia
1 December 12:30-1:30pm (AEDT, online)

In this conversation, leading First Nations academics and graduates will discuss the role of universities in recognising, celebrating and connecting with Indigenous knowledge and wisdom in all its forms. While the challenges are significant, the opportunities are great. How might we navigate these complex relationships together? In this session we invite panellists to present their vision for how the future of First Nations and universities together may become shared and mutually enriching. Speakers will be in conversation with our moderator, Professor Quentin Grafton, and will take questions from our online audience.

Imagining the science-policy interface in 2050
2 December 12:30-1:30pm (AEDT, online)

What will science and technology be like in 30 years? How might policy-making be different? When you bring the two together, will the interface between science and policy itself be different? In this forward-looking session, eminent water scientists and policy-makers will share their creative thinking about how science and technology may re-connect with policy. Considering social, cultural, environmental and economic values of water through the lens of the science-policy interface, speakers will offer their ideas on the changes that would need to happen soon, to realise the best possible outcomes for the future. Panellists include Professor Anthony Jakeman, Associate Professor Katherine Daniell, Dr Deborah Peterson, and Professor Paul Tregoning.
