National Reconciliation Week

Kaya, National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. This year, the theme is BE A VOICE FOR GENERATIONS, encouraging all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in tangible ways in our everyday lives. Visit the Actions page for knowledge and inspiration.

What else can you do?

A Reconciliation Action Plan gives your organisation a framework to contribute to the reconciliation movement. Take the first steps here. The Food, Fibre and Timber Industries Training Council will shortly be developing their reconciliation action plan and is looking forward to contributing to the reconciliation movement.
