It has been 5 years since the launch of the Uluru Statement from the Heart – the call for a First Nations voice to parliament. Watch this short video clip from NITV’s The Point explaining what the Uluru Statement from the Heart is.
Walking SA has begun the process of creating a Reconciliation Action Plan, engaging in the Reflect stage of the framework. We welcome any feedback as we find ways to advance reconciliation. We look at walking, especially bushwalking, and see a disconnect with love of being on country and engagement with, or understanding of Indigenous culture. Should you wish to contribute, please get in touch.
It’s Reconciliation Week 2022 – Be Brave, Make Change.
The RAP Framework
The four RAP types – Reflect, Innovate, Stretch and Elevate – allow organisations to continuously develop their reconciliation commitments.
Reconciliation Australia’s RAP Framework provides organisations with a structured approach to advance reconciliation.
Each type of RAP is designed to suit an organisation at different stages of their reconciliation journey and organisations can repeat the same type of RAP if appropriate.
Reflect: Scoping capacity for reconciliation
Reflect RAPs are for 12 months and are right if your organisation is new to reconciliation and unsure how to get started.
They set out steps to prepare your organisation for reconciliation initiatives in future RAPs.
Committing to a Reflect RAP means scoping and developing relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stakeholders, deciding on your vision for reconciliation and exploring your sphere of influence.
