Aboriginal policy is a highly contested and complex terrain overlain with historical baggage, misunderstandings and misinterpretations of the reality of the Aboriginal lived experience. Does the term sustainability mean anything to an Aboriginal person in Northern Australia where there are real fears of a disappearance of a culture, a people and a way of life?

Bevyline Sithole, Founder, Aboriginal Research Practitioners Network (ARPNet) and Adjunct Fellow at the Research Institute for Environment and Livelihoods, Charles Darwin University, Australia.

The talk took place on 6 December 2018 and was moderated by Katherine Richardson.

The event was organised by the Sustainability Science Centre at the University of Copenhagen, as a part of the Sustainability Lecture Series.
