Traditional Owners and First Nations people are invited to the next roundtable being held in Freemantle, Perth on 30-31 October 2023.
The Federal Government and all state and territory Energy Ministers have agreed to the co-design of a First Nations Clean Energy Strategy to ensure that First Nations people help drive the energy transformation.
This is an opportunity to review laws, regulation and policy, to lift barriers and implement regulatory reform, and to stoke government investment in innovation, technology and infrastructure, so that First Nations people can share in and benefit from the benefits of the renewable energy revolution.
The development of the strategy involves roundtables and consultations.
The roundtables bring together representatives from the First Nations community, the Network, industry, key government departments and Federal, State and Territory representatives, lawyers and policy experts.
These roundtables are an opportunity to come up with recommendations for actions, policies and programs that the Federal Government should implement as part of the strategy.
The roundtables are being hosted by the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water, with assistance from the National Indigenous Australians Agency and the First Nations Clean Energy Network.
Previous roundtables have occurred in the Pilbara, the Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia and the ACT.
