……..quite similar to what PWF does though they are very much at the other end of the spectrum!
This piece of research interests me. It was initiated by the Australian Collaboration and then developed in close association with the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS). It aims to:
“explore examples of successes in Indigenous organisations across the nation, to focus attention on those successes and to draw out the lessons that can be learnt from them.”
The Collaboration members are:
The Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF)
The Australian Consumers Association (ACA)
The Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS)
The Australian Council for International Development (ACFID)
The Federation of Ethnic Community Councils of Australia (FECCA)
The National Council of Churches in Australia and its Social Justice Network (NCCA)
The Trust for Young Australians (TYA)
There are also a lot of ‘backgrounder’ downloadable factsheets on a wide range of issues including Environmental, social and economic sustainability, democracy, society values, religion, multiculturalism, climate change, energy issues, clean energy, biodiversity, water, indigenous Australians, global poverty and war.
If you find PWF interesting you will really enjoy the depth of The Australian Collaboration – it’s well worth a visit!
