The inclusive nature of Cultural Burning


Fire and land management are a crucial aspect to preserving our landscapes and Scott Falconer, the Assistant Chief Fire Officer with Forest Fire Management Victoria, is a true believer in enabling our indigenous cultures to be included in the process.


Scott was fortunate enough to visit the First Nations people throughout North America as part of a Churchill Fellowship, and has much to share about his experiences.

Renae caught with Scott on the Regional Roundup to talk about his trip, lessons we can learn from indigenous cultures - both overseas and at home - the current practice of cultural burning and the importance of forming strong partnerships with out aboriginal communities.

Hear the full interview below, and learn more about the Fellowship trip by reading the full report.
