This 18 month project arising out of community disengagement, disappointment and discord involved the design and development of a Community Reengagement Plan involving a successful process of 16 family meetings, regional meetings and full group meeting enabling the community to overcome past enmities and differences, and develop a shared vision statement, implement a strategic plan and commence TOSA negotiations with the Victorian Government.
Facilitation and Mediation Projects
A substantial number of mediations and facilitations involving Traditional Owners in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and Northern Territory. Whilst the circumstances are different in each situation a purpose designed decision making framework was developed in each matter to support the participants engaging in dialogue processes in which party own decision making is paramount. The outcomes enable and empower the self-determination of the participants.
Training in conflict management, facilitation, and mediation for Traditional Owners, Representative Bodies and the National Native Title Tribunal. This training provides a conceptual understanding of conflict and supports attendees to develop the skills to facilitate decision making processes that are needed to achieve empowerment and connection.
