Open Access Australasia acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Open Access Australasia recognises the Awabakal, Turrbal and Yugara, and Bedegal as the First Nations owners of the lands where we work.
We also pay our respects to all indigenous peoples wherever they are in the world including ngā iwi Māori, the tangata whenua of Aotearoa New Zealand.
This year’s Open Access week theme seeks to encourage connection and collaboration among the climate movement and the international open community. Sharing knowledge is a human right, and tackling the climate crisis requires the rapid exchange of knowledge across geographic, economic, and disciplinary boundaries.
