Cultural diversity: to be treasured


Cultural diversity: to be treasured

Diversity offers brand-new ideas and perspectives that enrich our life.

This day is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits that come from cultural diversity. It’s a commitment on the part of the international community towards mutual understanding and intercultural dialogue, a commitment that takes on greater importance in an age when extremist movements direct their violence towards cultural minorities, destroying our shared heritage. The United Nations 2030 Agenda for sustainable development considers culture a means of change and development. We need to make use of each culture’s strength and creative potential, maintaining a continuous dialogue to ensure that everyone enjoys the benefits of development.

The values of the coast’s indigenous people

The staff of the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) and Teresa Lui Yuen, Eni Environmental Advisor, have conducted a participatory habitat mapping workshop together, with traditional owners and indigenous rangers from the Thamarrurr region in Wadeye. AIMS presented the results of the mapping to the eight rangers in attendance. During the presentation, the rangers selected the areas where they could provide further details to help improve the accuracy of the maps.

Working in a foreign country isn’t just about doing your job well. When you shut down your computer and the office door behind you, then there’s a different challenge: day-to-day life.
