EPIC CRC Information Session
23 November 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm AEDT
Industry members are invited to join us and learn more about becoming involved with the Economic Participation of Indigenous Communities (EPIC) CRC.
With the compelling vision of “Sustainable and productive land and waterscapes enabling indigenous economic participation and development”, the
Economic Participation of Indigenous Communities – EPIC CRC – bid is timely and much needed. Over the next 10 years this Indigenous-led CRC aims to develop an internationally competitive, dynamic and growing First Food Agribusiness and Fisheries sector built on, and recognised for, Indigenous principles of sustainability and ecosystem thinking. But it cannot do this alone.
Access to quality water and land are fundamental to these aspirations, as well as the development of new knowledge and approaches that enable Indigenous principles of sustainability and ecosystem thinking to guide the plans and policies by which land and water are managed in Australia and the Torres Strait Islands.
As the water industry grapples with a rapidly changing climate and our role in Reconciliation, there is much we can learn and do by listening to and being guided by the wisdom, knowledge and practices of the traditional owners of this Country. Research undertaken through the EPIC CRC could enable a parallel (2-eyed) way of approaching these challenges thereby delivering ‘best of both worlds’ knowledge and outcomes for us all – the Country, its custodians, and our customers and communities.
Come and hear how together we can practically build this through collaborative research. Meet and hear from the EPIC CRC bid’s academic team led by Professor Ross Thompson, as well as Acting CEO Phil Duncan and Research Co-Director A/Professor Brad Moggridge.
