FSC Australia’s vision is for healthy forests that support healthy communities.
On Thursday the 25th of May 2017, the eve of Sorry Day, The Reconciliation Action Plan for FSC Australia was at our 11th Annual General Meeting by elder Phil Duncan and Chair, Pat Groenhout.
FSC Australia’s vision is for healthy forests that support healthy communities. FSC Australia recognises that as the nation’s original stewards of the land, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have historically maintained the health of Australia’s forests, and continue to perform this role through their unique knowledge of and continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. In acknowledgement of this, FSC Australia’s vision for reconciliation in the practice of responsible forest management is respect for and protection of the cultural and custodial interests of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, including the unique responsibility of caring for country and maintaining places of cultural significance.
