Three webinars organised by the Royal Societies of Australia (with the involvement of The Royal Society of Queensland) were stimulating events giving plenty of food for thought. The public is encouraged to watch the events on the QSN Facebook page.
This series of three virtual events represented a collaboration between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander experts, industry practitioners, thinkers and the Royal Societies of Victoria, Queensland and New South Wales with support from the CSIRO. ‘Country’ is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander term used widely with strong connections to community, culture, identity, and language. ‘Stewardship’ describes a deep and custodial relationship between people and place.
The organisers intend to summarise the presentations and discussion and compile a synthesis submission to policy-makers. Also, the Royal Society of Victoria intends to publish the submitted papers in a special issue of its journal.
