ARC Indigenous Participation in a Low Carbon Economy
by Prof. Dora Marinova
ARC - Indigenous participation in a low-carbon economy
This project includes investigations and outcomes that contribute to the field of Service Design.
Australia’s transition towards a low-carbon economy will cause changes in skill requirements and raises the need to maximise Aboriginal participation. This innovative project will provide a better understanding of what is required for this to occur and showcase a new way of developing educational and training strategies for Indigenous engagement.
The aim of this study is to find out how Australian Indigenous people can be included in the emerging opportunities of a low-carbon economy.
In order to achieve this, it has the following three objectives
- Research and identify the training and skill development services and programs provided to marginalised Indigenous people
- Profile the range of future skill required in Australia’s emergent low-carbon economy
- Develop participation and investment policies, approaches and strategies that will facilitate the participation of Indigenous people for the growing labour market and business opportunities in low- carbon technologies, with particular regard for the cultural context and strengths of Indigenous people and communities
