2019 National Landscape Architecture Awards: Award of Excellence for Research, Policy and Communications

ReCasting Terra Nullius Blindness by Deakin University in conjunction with Griffith University, University of Canberra, The University of Western Australia and Central Queensland University

Jury citation:

The research, recommendations and publications of this project provide clear and achievable directions and guidance for tertiary institutions to include and engage with Australian Indigenous peoples’ rights, values and culture, and to respect Indigenous knowledge systems in curricula, research and professional activity.

Where adopted, this guidance for institutions and teachers will also undoubtedly steer the ethos and future practice of both international and domestic students across all environmental design and planning professions. Its significance therefore cannot be overstated. This work promulgates the ethos of “caring for Country” and must be recognized as a critical tool for environmental design and planning professionals embarking on their careers.

Location: Australia

Aboriginal Nations: Across all of Australia’s lands and waters
