WHAT IS STREAMS CONNECT 2018

STREAMS Connect is where Indigenous Sustainability and Business Meets

STREAMS Connect is a one day conference covering the entire educations and business life-cycle, plus post-event master classes for a more tailored and intimate learning experience in understanding Indigenous perspectives in science and approaches to long term sustainability.

Inspirational Indigenous practitioners share their thoughts on how the ever-increasing levels of technology in our everyday lives can impact teaching and learning about climate change issues and sustainability.

This gathering brings together Indigenous academics, theorists, researchers, designers, engineers, educators and students from across the community.

It provides an important opportunity to shape future research and investigations that are focused on exploring and sharing the sophistication, richness and leadership of Australia’s First Peoples within the scientific domain.

Through this event you will make new connections, find new ways to collaborate on ethical and culturally sounds research and projects that aim to sustain our communities and environments.
