‘IN THE ABSENCE OF TREATY” CANBERRA BOOK LAUNCH INVITATION. THURSDAY FEB 6 ANU COOP STORE 5:30 FOR 6.00 RSVP

This book defines how, through changes to legislation and by engaging Aboriginal peoples in decision-making without access to independent advice, control is slipping away from them. The book explores the current inadequacy of the processes used in engaging with Aboriginal people and the way in which government has continued to blatantly ignore the recommendations of their own committees in this regard.

For anyone wanting to explore more deeply the reasons for the ongoing and growing frustration of many Aboriginal people in the NT, this book provides a concise, but incisive account from recent reports. In doing this it hints at possibly the only solution - treaties.

Curriculum Wars: Will sustainability be a casualty?

How important is it that every schoolchild develops a balanced understanding of the challenge of sustainability, including the science of climate change and the kind of environmental threats that they and their offspring will inherit?  My own view is that for children now in the education system, a sophisticated understanding of these matters will be quite as important to their future as literacy and numeracy.
