A call for nominations is currently open for Indigenous land managers who might like to participate in a knowledge brokering workshop. The National Environmental Science Programme has funded a new initiative to strengthen the ability of Indigenous land managers to bring together Indigenous, western science and other types of knowledge into their land management decision-making, and to strengthen knowledge-sharing between Indigenous managers. As part of this initiative, two knowledge sharing workshops will be held with Indigenous land managers from across northern Australia.
The purpose of the workshops is to support Indigenous land managers from across northern Australia to share knowledge with each other. At the workshop, participants will share and develop strategies for bringing together, understanding, and applying different types of knowledge to take care of country, manage threats (e.g. fire, weeds), and deliver economic and other benefits to their communities. The workshop will involve a range of activities, including presentations about current research and models for using different types of knowledge, as well as discussions to identify issues and approaches to knowledge brokering, and good ways for participants to keep sharing knowledge with one another and with their own communities.
The project will provide travel, accommodation, and meals for a number of invited participants. If you would like to attend, or nominate someone else to attend, please fill out the nomination form in the links section. The closing date for nominations is Friday 4 November 2016.
