Time for a reconciliation strategy

We’re developing a strategy to formalise our commitment to reconciliation in Boroondara.

This is a significant step towards achieving reconciliation on a local scale, with consultation underway to explore our community’s vision for reconciliation. Consultation will consider issues that are important to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, ways we can strengthen relationships with key organisations and groups in this space, and our community’s overarching vision for reconciliation.

Local resident, artist, writer and priest, Reverend Glenn Loughrey, welcomes the development of the Reconciliation Strategy.

As an Aboriginal person living in the Boroondara area, I am encouraged by Council’s commitment to pursue a reconciliation process. I look forward to working with them and seeing what comes to fruition.

You’re invited to share ideas about what reconciliation means to you this month. Your feedback will inform the draft Boroondara Reconciliation Strategy, which is expected to be released in late 2021.
