Event description

Dates: 8 August 2024

Times: 5.30pm - 7.00pm

Venue: CSIRO Hobart Site

Many scientists acknowledge the crucial role of Indigenous knowledge, resources, and practices in combating climate change. But genuine collaboration with Indigenous peoples in addressing our environmental challenges is uncommon. Indeed, although Indigenous peoples are often sought out for answers, they have rarely been included in framing the questions or — crucially — the nature of the problem to begin with. 

In this conversation with both Indigenous and non-Indigenous scientists and academics, we'll take a step back and reconsider some of the basic assumptions about the roots of our environmental problems. We'll also consider positive examples of collaborative working relationships that are Indigenous led, rather than being extractive and exploitative.

Speakers: Mibu Fischer, Professor Greg Lehman, Professor Gretta Pecl.

This discussion will include Auslan interpreting.
