About this Event

Fire is a fundamental earth systems process. Behind climate, it’s the most important factor that determines vegetation across the earth.

Michael-Shawn Fletcher, July 2020

In a year book-ended by catastrophic bushfires both in Australia and the Americas, it’s clear that existing approaches to caring for Country need to change.

Associate Professor Michael-Shawn Fletcher and award-winning STEM journalist, NITV’s Rae Johnston will share a yarn about First Peoples cultural burning traditions as scientific practice and the role of Indigenous futurism.

Join their discussion as they imagine a future where Indigenous knowledge has radically changed the threat of climate change.
