Supporting the Voice to Parliament
Future Earth Australia supports a ‘Yes’ vote on the Voice to Parliament.
Future Earth Australia aims to accelerate transformation towards a more sustainable and equitable planet.
This transformation is achieved by working across disciplines, sciences, and knowledge systems, including those of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
For millennia, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities have cultivated and honed this knowledge.
This knowledge is both ancient and contemporary, and is exercised towards a particular end: the health and wellbeing of Country, as well as its skies, seas, and land.
The Voice to Parliament will provide Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with a mechanism through which they can advise the Federal Parliament on issues affecting their communities, including those related to sustainability and environmental change.
The Voice is a generative step forward to ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are appropriately recognised as the First Peoples of this land.
