Event Details

First Nations have been caring and listening to country for over 65 000 years.  They have developed ways to decode the complex environment to understand the engineering and science of how the water and environment are interconnected,  which have been transferred through songlines, language, art and dreamtime stories to transfer this important knowledge from one generation to the next.  Their ability to understand how the natural world is linked to cycles that predict seasonal changes has been critical to thriving Indigenous communities across one of the driest continents in the world. These natural indicators use the reaction of plants and animals to gain insight into environmental changes such as approaching drought or floods.  Now as we face some of societies biggest environmental challenges, it’s time to build back wiser through incorporating our First Nations Engineering Knowledge with technology to learn, empower and adapt sustainable engineering practices.

Walk on Country followed by Keynote Presentation and Interactive Panel Discussion.
