First Nations STEM Showcase

Monday 8 July 2024

In celebration of NAIDOC Week 2024, the Perth USAsia Centre is pleased to invite you to a First Nations STEM Showcase, aligned with this year’s theme: ‘Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud and Proud’.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have sustainably managed Australia’s land and waters for more than 65,000 years. These management practices deliver climate solutions through mitigation and adaptation co-benefits, and achieve biodiversity outcomes. Over the coming decade, the Australian Government is seeking to boost funding for Indigenous Protected Areas, to double the number of Indigenous rangers working in Australia and ensure they play a leading role in the preservation of Country.
 
This year’s NAIDOC Week theme ‘Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud and Proud’ honours the enduring strength of First Nations culture – with fire a symbol of connection to Country, to each other, and to the rich tapestry of traditions that define Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Join us for a panel discussion with leading Western Australian Indigenous scientists and learn about the latest developments and research innovations coming out of Western Australia in fields such as biodiversity, conservation, environmental science and Aboriginal fire knowledge and management.

This event is free to attend, however, places are limited and registration is essential.

  • Date: Monday 8 July 2024
  • Time: 10.30am to 11.30am, followed by networking until 12pm AWST
  • Venue: The University Club of Western Australia
