International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples Symposium
Please join the Indigenous Knowledge Institute to celebrate the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples on August 9 and 10.
The International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples marks the day of the first meeting, in 1982, of the UN Working Group on Indigenous Populations of the Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights.
To recognise this day, the Indigenous Knowledge Institute is hosting a two-day symposium to showcase and celebrate a variety of Indigenous knowledges from across the University of Melbourne and the community. We will discuss ways to draw Indigenous knowledges into different areas including policy, health, justice, and education.
The event will be delivered both in-person and online and will be Auslan interpreted.
