In this together, the theme for National Reconciliation Week (NRW) 2020, encourages all Australians to reflect on the part they play – whether big or small – on our journey towards reconciliation.
This unity of purpose creates a shared sense of belonging and identity; and this identity must value and include the histories, cultures and rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Unity is one of the five dimensions of reconciliation as defined by Reconciliation Australia - and it is also one of our four core values at North Queensland Bulk Ports.
We recognise reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward.
This creates a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian community, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
We look forward to building on the established working relationships we have with the Traditional Owners of the land and waters of our ports.
We’re pleased to be demonstrating our commitment to reconciliation within Australia through the development of a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) due to be released this year.
The dates for NRW remain the same each year: 27 May to 3 June. These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey – the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision, respectively.
