CUAC Director Jo Benevenuti invites interested people to attend the following event:
On behalf of CUAC, I invite you to join in an important discussion about CUAC’s new report WEIN, PAEN, YA ANG GIM: VICTORIAN ABORIGINAL EXPERIENCES OF ENERGY AND WATER.
The report details the findings of CUAC’s research project exploring Victorian Aboriginal people’s experiences as consumers of energy and water. The project was guided by a Steering Committee consisting of three Aboriginal members from the City of Yarra, the Department of Justice and the Victorian Statewide Indigenous Homelessness Network, Ngwala Willumbong Cooperative and two members from Kildonan UnitingCare. Without their skills, input and time this project would not have been possible.
For the research, CUAC met and spoke with Aboriginal consumers in Melbourne, Gippsland and the Mallee, as well as a range of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal organisations and surveyed energy retailers and local water businesses. We are very grateful for the support of participants in this project.
The report examines the challenges Aboriginal participants faced, and the suggestions proposed as practical solutions to those challenges. The report is a call for energy and water businesses, the Victorian and Federal governments, regulators and other key stakeholders to be part of the solution.
We welcome everyone who was involved in this project and those who would like to learn more.
