AWE looks forward to Australia’s National Reconciliation Week, 27 May – 3 June, as an opportunity to strengthen relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples, for the benefit of all Australians.
AWE acknowledges that the emergency management and disaster resilience sector has much to learn from cultural land management practices in ensuring sustainable environments, and in how we can best work alongside and enable Indigenous communities to lead their own resilience efforts before, during and after emergencies and disasters.

We are excited by the Biri Bulmba Budang National Custodians of Country Gathering 2023 which will take place in far north Queensland in August. The Gathering will demonstrate practical innovation to contemporary land and sea management, biodiversity, threatened species management and agriculture with practical sessions on Country, cultural workshops and conference symposia.
