29-08-2022 15:46

The Working Together Program, a critical and new component of the NSW Landcare Program, aims to increase opportunities to consciously develop stronger connections and partnerships between Landcare groups and Aboriginal communities across NSW.

The presentation outlines core outcomes of the program, including the introduction of cultural practices into the traditional areas of Landcare including cultural burning, running specific Aboriginal youth events, and introducing High Schools to Aboriginal Landcare culture and practises. This year, the third for the program, also resulted in the employment of an Aboriginal Landcare Officer in the North Coast Region, and another in Murrumbidgee Region Landcare region. The intent is that these roles will be the first of many for Landcare networks. The presentation explores the idea of working together and sharing ideas and knowledge, and undertaking joint projects – a core focus of the Aboriginal program which is manifesting in several ways.
