Please join the Melbourne Centre for Cities for those interested in how Universities and Cities collaborate for impact.
This 1-day symposium features thought-provoking speakers, cutting-edge research and practice, and participatory discussions, to think about opportunities and challenges that arise when universities and cities work together to address important urban issues. Universities play a vital role in shaping the economic, social, and cultural landscape of their communities, and their impact can be felt far beyond the boundaries of their campuses.
At the same time, cities provide universities with a rich and diverse environment that supports their research, teaching, and projects.

This webinar is the fourth in the Australian Centre’s 2023 Critical Public Conversations series: Country, Climate, Colonialism.
Before colonisation the Australian Landscape had already evolved with the custodianship of Aboriginal people for thousands of years. Everything was here, the animals, the plants, the waters were clean, the trees were Elders, and there was an abundance of our kinship with the natural world which is now considered as resource. The story is embedded within the memory of the landscape and the land remembers how it needs to be cared for which sits alongside the trauma of its recent collection of memories of decline and devastation of the natural world. Victor Steffensen will be talking on memory within the land and how important it is in understanding who we are and what role we play when it comes to caring for country. Indigenous knowledge and the relationships with Country is the foundation to understanding how we can read the language from country and what many communities are doing to align themselves with the memory of Mother Nature as a target for generations to come.
