Indigenous Engagement Programme
Indigenous Australian perspectives on urban environments have much to contribute but have not previously been a strong feature of urban research and planning. CAUL Hub researchers are committed to genuine engagement with and participation of Indigenous Australians to help shape our research through the inclusion of Indigenous Australian perspectives and knowledge. We also seek the opportunity to build partnerships and increase our understanding of Indigenous communities in our cities, and those working with our partner institutions through existing reconciliation action plans and other engagement strategies, programs and projects.
The CAUL Hub Indigenous Engagement and Participation Strategy can be downloaded here.
The CAUL Hub is advised by a group of Indigenous Australian leaders from around Australia. Details of the CAUL Hub Indigenous Advisory Group can be found here.
Caring for Country – an urban perspective is an initiative the CAUL Hub is developing in partnership with Indigenous Architecture and Design Victoria and the Monash Sustainability Institute, as part of our Indigenous Engagement and Participation Strategy. The current version of the Caring for Country: An Urban Application report can be downloaded here. A report on a workshop held in October 2015 can be downloaded here.For more details contact Dr Cathy Oke, Knowledge Broker.
