Everywhere in this country we are being invited to learn about Aboriginal wisdom and connection. Geoffrey Simpson, who has been a mentor to Friends of Grasslands (FOG) on its exploration in understanding of traditional land management practices, says it may be just a matter of saying hello and a readiness to learn and show respect.
Geoffrey grew up knowing his Aboriginal heritage but had to search deeper to better learn it. He started on a journey to understand Aboriginal practice and he has shared his learning, stories, life and values, with many Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people along the way. He is now in the Fire and Cultural Science team within the NSW Department of Planning Industry and Environment. There he is developing the science behind bringing a cultural voice to landscape management.
On 14 August, Geoffrey and FOG will provide a view of the landscape through a cultural /scientific lens. There will be many opportunities to ask questions and to listen to others’ experience. Inquiries : [email protected]
