Jacqui’s

Perspective

“Australia is facing climate emergency without a safety plan. Aboriginal land management practices which provided safety for generations have been disregarded since colonisation with severe consequences. Can Australia continue to fail to include Aboriginal people and Indigenous knowledges in a sustainable future?“
