Stronger Communities for Children Knowledge Sharing Seminar

The stakeholders of the Stronger Communities for Children (SCfC) program met again in late September 2018 at the Knowledge Sharing Seminar held in Darwin. The seminar opened with a Welcome to Country from traditional owner Donna Jackson, on behalf of Larrakia Nation. She spoke with the participants about local sites close to the place we were meeting, men’s and women’s places and, in particular, the special coastal sites to avoid at low tide.

The Knowledge Sharing Seminar provided an opportunity for everyone to learn about recent research on childhood development from the Menzies School of Health Research and Charles Darwin University/Yalu Marnggithinyaraw Indigenous Corporation.

Participants also reflected on the Collective Voice initiatives and collective impact principles of past SCfC activities. Guests speakers included Randall Cook from the NT Department of Education’s Remote Early Childhood and Integrated Services, talking about the NT Together 4 Kids event.
