National Caring for Country Conference 2019

Darwin, Northern Territory

The 2019 National Indigenous Caring for Country Conference encompasses the belief that living on country positively impacts on Aboriginal & Torres Straits Islander peoples’ health and well-being. With the challenges of climate change nowadays, our caring for country traditions and methods are receiving greater recognition in partnership with various sectors in government, NGOs, community and in the private sector. The conference highlights that caring for country encompasses the holistic meanings and values of Indigenous people throughout Australia. However, caring for country for both land and sea is everyone’s business and should not be just an Indigenous tradition, but is a shared responsibility of all people in the world.
The conference themes include:
  • Health & Well-being
  • Indigenous Land Treaty Rights
  • Indigenous peoples as custodians and stewards of the land
  • Land Management
  • Water & marine management
  • Environmental impact on food sustainability
  • Food sovereignty  
  • Technology & Innovations
