What could we learn if we listened carefully and connected with place more deeply? What could happen if we looked at global systems from an indigenous perspective, one concerned with understanding the patterns of living knowledge relations that exist -- and always have existed -- between all things?
Tyson Yunkaporta, acclaimed author of Sand Talk and Norm Sheehan, Australia’s leading Indigenous systems thinker, join RSA Oceania Director Philipa Duthie for a very special ‘yarn’ exploring issues of culture, climate and sustainability.
Across a rich and expansive conversation, they reflect on the need to cultivate cultures of repair to re-establish the relationships that are foundational to life: our relationship with the land, with Country, with culture, and with each other.
Underpinning these relationships is the principle of respect. Only when we respect the living connections between all things and places can we live in balance with Earth’s systems.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners and custodians of the unceded lands on which this event was filmed, and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. The RSA supports the Uluru Statement from the Heart to achieve justice, recognition and respect for Australia's First Nations people and a referendum to enshrine a First Nations Voice in the Australian Constitution.
Look out for more events on this theme coming up in our Regenerative Futures programme this autumn.
