The Future We Want: Conversations with Young Indigenous Leaders
In National Reconciliation Week, the UNAA Young Professionals Queensland heard from inspiring speakers on Sat 30 May in our first online webinar.
We were informed, inspired, and engaged by young community leaders as part of our ongoing series 'The Future We Want'. The event discussed issues relating to Indigenous health, community activism, climate change and actions towards being a better ally and ensuring a better future for everyone.

Tamika Sadler: Brisbane SEED Youth Indigenous Climate Network (SEED) Coordinator; based on Yuggera and Yugambeh lands.

Thank you to our moderator, all our speakers and individuals involved - it was a great event and we have received wonderful feedback! As always, we at the UNAA respectfully acknowledge that this online event will be hosted by individuals on the land of the Turrbal and Yuggera peoples, as well as watched by others from across the many Nations.
