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.
